I am in the middle of Montana and there are so many things I love about Florio's writing.
First of all the main character is a strong, competent woman. Ah, what a relief from the silly blushing that happens in so many novels. Second it takes place in Montana and I always love reading novels that take place out there in areas with which I'm not all that familiar. Third, the writing is absolutely excellent. Rich, deep, meaningful and so very original in perception and view point. And fourth, can't stop reading it; it's SO interesting!
