Susan Stinson

10:45 am: Disappears
I got this late yesterday, in praise of Spider in a Tree.  It's a wonderful thing. 

"With dazzling poetic prose, Susan Stinson conjures the sensibility of a world three hundred years distant from our own. She captures the drama of heart and the idiom of spirit in 18th century New England. Like a great actor, Stinson disappears into every unique character she portrays and thus offers up the range of our humanity. (And then there are the quivering June bugs and dancing spiders!) She weaves the contradictions, blessings, and revelations into a vibrant, compelling tale of faith, freedom, and slavery in an elusive god’s marvelous creation."

Andrea Hairston, Redwood and Wildfire
