My rating: 5 of 5 stars
R Lee Smith is by far the best author for alien/human interaction. Her writing style is so on point.
I read the author’s note on Cottonwood and shared the angst over whether or not to put out this book. I’m so glad she did!
The story is well written, humour out, horrifying, suspenseful, with pathos, passion and an innocence that charms you, even through the most terrible scenes. This is not an exaggeration.
