Lots of Sad Relationships and Storms submitted by ekjensen on June 21, 2018, 10:48pm The narratives and descriptions are hot, humid, and honest. Ms Groff reaches into the female psyche, in particular, in various settings in Florida and if not, characters who are displaced or away from their Florida roots. An interesting, but not best read for me.

Okay book submitted by wookeny on July 19, 2019, 3:10pm This book is kind of sad, and has a lot of storms, because Florida has a lot of storms, so this book talks about a lot of storms. 2/5 stars.

A masterwork submitted by redwood on July 24, 2019, 8:12pm A fantastic linked story collection dealing with parenthood, climate, gender, exploring particular cross-sections of Florida with an undercurrent of dread. Groff will haunt you for years.
