Book Description Harper & Row, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. From Publishers Weekly: Plover is the brutal, sexually magnetic macho man who causes a sensational murder trial in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. He has been killed by his second wife, Winnette, whose naive and winsome ways are a concern to her friend and co-worker at the jeans factory, Mavis, who had been Plover's first wife. Mavis wonders anxiously about Winnette, "What if she made a gentleman of Plover? What if he came to be dependable and sober? " It turns out, however, that all of Plover's ugly traits--drug using and-running, sadism--were revealed in his brief, explosive marriage to Winnette. At the trial, we hear unabashedly from everyone--judge, jury, court psychiatrist, Mavis, as well as Winnette--and find that the defendant's very special appeal makes the hard-won verdict ring true. A wealth of humor and underlying rue distinguish this entertaining novel, developed through alternating viewpoints, and accurately reflecting Southern voices and sensibilities. Ehle ( Last One Home ) has a deft touch, a sure grasp of character and, here, a diverting story. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal In some mountain coves of North Carolina, "for better or for worse" still means just that. Winnette knew Ernest Lloyd Plover to be a hard-drinking, drug-pushing, gun-carrying, abusive man before she married him, didn't she? Then she shot him dead in self-defense--or premeditated murder. Her trial proceeds through the testimony of witnesses and the pronouncements of the crotchety judge, the rookie DA, and the retired lawyer court-appointed to defend her. No Perry Mason antics here; just plain mountain people trying to arrive at justice. Characterizations are strong, the descriptions of wife abuse even more so. While not of the quality of Ehle's The Winter People ( LJ 3/15/82) and Last One Home ( LJ 9/1/84), this is still recommended for public libraries. -Maurice Taylor, Brunswick Cty. Lib., Southport, N.C. Copyright 1989 Reed Business I. Bookseller Inventory # 0003831
