About this title


The Five O’Clock Cake, set in Anderson Valley in Northern California, depicts the life of a pioneer family in the late l920s with humor and tragic irony. It is told from multiple points of view. The characters speak in a country vernacular. Gramma Bess is the matriarch owner of Sorenson Hills, a ranch with orchards of apple trees, rolling hills, and a road that leads to the river. George is Gramma Bess’s only son, who takes over management of the ranch. When he is forty, he brings home a young Indian girl, Kittijo, from a hunting trip and marries her. Gramma Bess moves George out of the mansion, so he builds a cabin for himself and Kittijo outside the fence that surrounds the mansion and faces the bunkhouse. The bunkhouse is where the young ranch hand Duff lives. Each night, while occupants of the houses sleep, Kittijo and Duff slip out for moonlight rendezvous.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
