Review: The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd by Bette Lee Crosby
For those times when i feel down, or just in need of book comfort, I and many other happy readers know just where to turn: to any novel from Bette Lee Crosby. Her very newest, THE REGRETS OF CYRUS DODD, is a fine example. Author Crosby has a writing style that is immediately relaxing yet riveting, and the reader finds attention locked to the page. Set in the fairly early 20th century, in rural West Virginia, this novel relates the story of dedicated farmer and husband Cyrus Dodd, a man who possessed so many intrinsic blessings, yet allowed pride to trip him up, and not just his own pride, but the pride of another. Like so many of us, Cyrus' moral integrity meant that when he was right, he knew it, and he expected everyone else to also know and acknowledge. But not every individual possesses integrity or even character; and when Cyrus' innate sense of justice encounters one of those individuals, he unwittingly steps into a damaging situation which unrolls like a snowball flying down a mountainside.
