Rod Davis, writing for Plaza de Armas, an excellent news and culture site in San Antonio, had this to say about my novel: "Starnes imbues Fall Line with a lyrical authenticity and nuance that captures a truth of place in time...In naturalist fiction, Nature does not judge what it engenders. The sun rises. The sun sets. Things happen. What happened in Fall Line was that a dam was built, a way of life vanished, men fell in the forest and there was no sound, only fury."
