As a writer, I can't believe this is a first novel. Michael Morris is definately an author to keep an eye on because he obviously knows how to tell a captivating story and create characters that any reader will fall in love with. The characters in this book are real and Michael writes them as if he has known them his whole life. They show strength and integrity developed through adversity and, although they are ficticious, become people that you admire and want to embrace as a friend.
As I read his book, I felt like I was a part of the story. I felt like I was there. I've never physically been to Alabama, but after reading this book I feel like I have.
No matter where you live, A Place Called Wiregrass is a must read!
