Thanks to SHE WRITES PRESS, we’re excited to be apart of Alice Bingham Gorman’s debut novel, VALERIA VOSE: A Novel blog tour.
VALERIA VOSE: A Novel takes a reader deep inside the cultural and emotional life of a 1970’s southern woman. Privileged, approaching age forty, her “perfect” life is shattered. Determined to survive, she’s forced to confront all preconceived values and expectations in order to find a path toward creative, spiritual independence and her true identity.
The prose are lovely in this book, but I didn’t connect with the main character. I kind of felt put off by the strong Christian theme. But that’s only my reaction. Perhaps you will enjoy VALERIA VOSE.
