Editorial Reviews

"Terry Kay's best novels have always happened when Kay himself falls in dazzling love with the characters he is creating. When his engagement with those characters is total, he creates worlds where love sets all the rules, makes all the appointments, and breaks all the hearts. This is Terry Kay country. Terry has never created a woman he loves more than Lottie Lanier. "Taking Lottie Home" is his best book" -- Pat Conroy"An evocative, atmospheric and elegiac story of an uncommon woman and the three men she loves?this affecting novel glows with warmth and sincerity, and manifests Kay's customary ability to pull at the heartstrings. is an evocative, atmospheric and elegiac story of an uncommon woman and the three men she loves." ?"Publishers Weekly""Elegaic...(Kay) evokes these unsung lives with remarkable tenderness." --"Kirkus""Captivating?timeless?"Taking Lottie Home" offers the whole literary package-imagery and metaphor, characters wound together in an ennobling story." -"The Fort Worth Star-Telegram "Kay's prose has an almost dreamlike accessibility, flowing as smoothly as a river without curves." -"The Orlando Sentinel"?If there was ever a doubt that Terry Kay had another novel in him to equal "To Dance with the White Dog," Taking Lottie Home should dispel that doubt.? ?"Bookpage"
