I've always enjoyed Dorothy Weil's vels with their salty depictions of midwestern life. LOVE AND TERROR is Weil's best to date, gritty, suspenseful, humorous and wise. -Stephen Birmingham, author of OUR CROWD and over twenty best-selling vels and social histories. In LOVE AND TERROR a family battles with illness, war, and tumultous cultural changes. Every reader will recognize incidents and attitudes in their own lives. The vel is infused with sharp insight, sharp repartee, sharp humor, and beautifully developed characters. Read it! You will be reminded and rewarded in ways you never contemplated. -Ceil Cleveland, author of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO JACY FARROW? THE BLUEBOOK SOLUTION and SHORT STORIES UNZIPPED.
