A great read by a talented writer! 29 May 2009
By Christina Ruotolo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It was a great suspense filled historical, mystery, romance filled with intrigue and espionage. I love how the book centered around the main character June "June Bug" Horton and a journey of several decades and three generations of hidden family secrets. The characters were multi-faceted, all intertwining with one another to uncover the mysteries of the past set against the backdrop of southern charm, money, greed and Magnolia trees. It is one of the best books I have read in a long time.

Lovely... 30 Jan. 2007
By chuck chuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's hard to write a comment without giving the story away, but the poetic flow to the story is enchanting. A good read. I would reccommend it to anyone who likes to curl up in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine...
June Deserves the Best... 11 Nov. 2006
By Carolyn Howard-Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was nominated for the Noble (Not Nobel) Prize I give each January. I was reluctant to pass on it because it is such a delightful and poetic portrait of one June, the book's protagonist. All contests put forth parameters for the judging and this book, didn't quite fit within those guidelines. Still, it is a deserving book, one I hope many--especially young women--will explore.

fine family drama 11 Dec. 2009
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Her mom passed away five years ago, but though the loss was hard, June Whitley Horroa had no major problem moving on because she had Aunt V who in many ways has been a surrogate mom to her for years. In 2005, June has come home to Richmond, Virginia where her family is part of the elite upper class living on Monument Ave.

She wonders about Aunt Vivian's late husband Uncle Bill who died years ago when he was young. When Vivian becomes ill, she insists on telling June the truth about her heritage starting in 1942when her beloved Bill begged her to take him back after he left Sally; she pleaded with him to fix her indiscretion as the Negro Howard who has a family and she had an affair leaving her pregnant. Stunned and ignoring her problems with Meniere's, June begins digging into her past finding a concealed trapped door that stuns her as her family was involved in international intrigue with Nazis and local southern intrigue with African-Americans. The more she digs, the more she learns that her white bread upper crust family has a lot of fascinating passionate skeletons; some of whom still live and love especially when musing about the Corn Huskers Ball.

The cast throughout especially June, Vivian and the rest of the family past and present are a strong fully developed crowd who bring to life Richmond circa 1942, 2005 and several pivotal dates in between. Fans will relish this fine family drama as amateur sleuth June begins her investigation into her twentieth century roots especially looking closely at the relationship between Howard and Vivian. Summed up nicely by Freud, that sometimes a "cigar is just a cigar", but sometimes it is much more if one is willing to risk what he or she thought they knew about their extended family.

Family Secrets Run Deep and Wide 7 Nov. 2005
By Vannie Ryanes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The power of this book surprised and delighted me. Each character's life in some way, is intricately intertwined with other lives in "June of the Corn Huskers Ball". While June learns about life and it's complexities, she also learns about whispered family scandals and carefully hidden secrets. As June delves deeper into the past to get to the truth hiding behind family conversations she finds more than she ever expected to find. Sometimes it is more than she wanted to know. But June has her own secret that she must acknowledge and embrace.

"June of the Corn Huskers Ball" has a full range of characters that make you laugh and cry. Some are in denial, most of full of hope and all are passionate. There are countless visible and invisible boundaries that some will cross all for the sake of love.
