"If you can write, that's great. If you can tell a story, that's even greater. But if you can work a resilient premise into both, you're worth digging to find."

Love in the Driest Season: A Family Memoir by Neely Tucker

Synopsis:Memoir of a foreign correspondent and his wife adopting a native born African child. 

Writing Style: First person reporter/personal.

Pacing: Fast.

Personal Highlights: I love, Loved, LOVED this memoir. No, didn’t agree with all the perspectives but enjoyed the genuine pacing, the fierce storytelling, the frank passion, the splashes of humor, and especially the deep (often innocuous) insights into West/South African culture, politics and people. All of that, and yet this book at heart centered around one little girl. I'm saying from page one to the end, this memoir is 'Capital W' a definite WINNER! Simply A Must. Highly Recommended.
