Review of Rough Patches by Deanna Dickenson McCall
This author knows her way around a ranch, understands the ranching community, and knows the hardships as well as the benefits of a life few in this country still grasp.
The short stories in this book range from sad to dark to humorous but each one has a basis in reality, and that is what "Rough Patches" is about, stories about those times in life when things just aren't going right. The thing about going through a rough patch though is that you get over them, the brighter side is just 'over there.'
McCall writes about strong female characters handling tough situations in a challenging landscape and come out of it for the better maybe understanding one more thing about themselves and one more thing about life.
