FRIENDSWOOD by Rene Steinke

Rene Steinke’s FRIENDSWOOD was reviewed in the Los Angeles Times Book Review, Dallas Morning News, and PureWow, which said, “Steinke has a lyrical way with words, and she’s at her best when describing the small-town Texas dynamics and blighted landscape—an effect that falls somewhere between Erin Brockovich and Friday Night Lights.”

The Dallas Morning News said “Steinke is generous with her characters…Not everything is neatly wrapped up by novel’s end, and that’s exactly as it should be. The characters feel very real, and in real life, our arcs aren’t always so tidy.”
The LA Times said, “Steinke’s sensitive exploration of tangled human connections reminds us that love and friendship will go a long way toward seeing us through our trials.” Riverhead published the book on August 1, 2014.
