Five Miles South of Peculiar
Five Miles South of Peculiar is a well written story that describes in detail the four persons, three sisters and one pastor all living together on a Southern Florida estate. It describes how each got to be where they are presently, and the life that each created for themselves. Dalene is afraid of living in her Broadway sister's shadow. Carlene, the star, lost her singing voice after an operation failed, and Magnolia had her heart broken and cannot move on. The book talks of loss of love, family dynamics, and the dysfunctional past for each character even though they are siblings who all grew up togerther. Five Miles also looks at life in a small town and what life is like for those living there. Sisters would love this book and could relate to the situations described.
