Captivating Apr 15, 2002
This novel is one of the most realistic portrayals of Downeast Maine that I have ever read. Living in Downeast Maine and experiencing many of the trials and tribulations that are portrayed in this novel, are what makes Polyester Pride a definate five star for me. I can't wait for the sequel.
