In Robin's debut novel, the characters search for meaning in life and a place where all belong. A story that is a mixture reminiscent of Fried Green Tomatoes and At Home in Mitford, this novel portrays a loving sense of community and home. The rural North Carolina town of Pleasant Quarry becomes a place where all belong. Robin set out to write a story that was more similar to the life lived in a rural setting. Robin's non-fiction tends to have a very religious or spiritual nature to it. I'm this work of fiction, some of that spiritual color comes through, but in a way that is listed as a minor bit of information. The point of this fiction is simply to tell a good story that might make you laugh, might make you think, but the purpose is merely telling a good story. It is Robin's hope that the story you are about to read will be interesting as you catch a glimpse of life in the rural South of the Piedmont in North Carolina.
