Here's what Paul has to say about this fantastic book:

Michelle Hoover, who wowed Prairie Lights’ audience with her reading from her first novel, The Quickening, now has a second novel. It’s called Bottomland and, like her first book, deals with life in rural Iowa (Hoover is from Ames) in the early part of the 20th Century. This book is a bit more of a thriller than was The Quickening. It involves an escaped German prisoner of who may have kidnapped a farm child. As always, Hoover’s novel is well-researched, with characters who emerge from the circumstances of their lives. The reader is pulled in from the first page.  If you love Willa Cather and the other great mid-western writers, you won’t want to miss this reading.
