Roseflower Creek by Jackie Miles
on 23 April 2009
After reading another Jackie Miles novel (Cold Rock River)I was looking forward to what Roseflower Creek may offer. However it's a bleak read from start to finish with some very low points centered around child pornography and physical abuse. What makes an author choose sodomy and extreme physical abuse graphically detailed as a sub text to excuse a lead character's cruelty? I was also surprised that this was her first novel and that the publisher's encouraged her to write another book. What a sad society we live in if this kind of fictional account is seen as interesting and/or entertaining.
