    The night the lights went out.

    A riveting piece of literary work. An art meant for the intellectuals. Coming with simple literary expressions and embedded with moral ironies, this art, a classic for the discerning, will make a good read among the academics and the public.

    5 Bless Her Heart Stars!

    Favorite Quotes: Although all four brothers were long gone, Sugar now found herself seeing them more and more, as if old age was nothing more than the past and present squeezing together like an accordion until no air was left. But hiding the truth is like putting perfume on a pig. That pig’s still going to smell. Curtis had taken over running the farm, but he was so lazy he couldn’t catch his breath if it didn’t come naturally. It was a sin to hate, but I thought God would make an exception for Curtis. The boy was pure evil, and if I was Catholic like Willa Faye, I would have found some holy water to sprinkle on him. She stood and went to the door, peering through the door’s windows to make sure it wasn’t one of those people asking her to buy something or here to save her soul. She didn’t need to buy anything— unless they were Girl Scouts selling cookies— and the state of her soul was between her and Jesus and was nobody else’s business. So pull up your big-girl panties and let’s go to the store. I’m out of sugar and if you force me to drink this dishwater one more time, I’ll complain to someone about elder abuse. The hardest thing sometimes is in determining the good people in your life from the rotten ones, because unlike apples, you can’t tell a good one from looking at their skin. Revenge might be best served cold, but karma has its own icy boot, and you’re about to feel it up your backside. My Review: I can’t rave enough about this book! The Night the Lights Went Out was cleverly crafted, deftly written, and skillfully constructed. I essentially fell into the story from the beginning pages and had considerable difficulty putting my kindle down until the tale concluded. This ingeniously woven story was brilliantly paced and deftly written with touching and emotive visuals, smart humor, and alluring and compelling characters who were not always likable yet unendingly fascinating. The storyline threaded in and out of various timelines detailing tragedies, mysteries, long-held secrets and private shame. Old and new mysteries were slowly exposed, as was an extensive and intriguing scheme of revenge. I was spellbound by Sugar’s memories, cherished the anonymous blog postings, relished the wit and Southernisms sprinkled throughout, and remained fully engaged and immersed in this tale from start to finish. Karen White is a sharply honed wordsmith and master storyteller. I have a new favorite author!

    A compelling tale

    Karen White has once again proved that she is one of the best author in Women fiction. I love the strong characters of women in her books. They really inspire me to be strong, confident and bold. This book is like a precious present wrapped in too many layers. One by one as the layers are removed slowly and gradually the book reveals its secret..... And you end up reading one of the most wonderful story of your life....
