Publisher's Summary

Sarah Bird authors brilliant, captivating novels such as The Yokota Officer's Club (S1000). Virgin of the Rodeo takes listeners on a riotous journey across the wide open spaces of Texas with a truly unique character named Sonja Getz. Sonja is seen as a curiosity in the minuscule Texas town of Dorfburg. Twenty-nine years-old, and big-boned, she is purported to be the daughter of a famous Native American trick-roper. Her mother, Tinka, a transplanted German who despises Americans, has never understood book-crazed, dark-skinned Sonja. Now that her mother is marrying a fang-toothed linoleum salesman, Sonja may finally get the chance to move out of the stifling burg and begin a search for the father she has never known. With an unforgettable cast of characters, Bird's enjoyable novel never fails to intrigue. Cynthia Darlow's animated narration perfectly suits Bird's richly descriptive prose.

Slow starts gets more interesting

What did you love best about Virgin of the Rodeo?

This was a light hearted story, started kinda slow, but it does get better.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cynthia Darlow?

I don't know, but she sounded like she had dry mouth

Any additional comments?

I drive 3 hours a day, so I listen to a lot of audio books, I enjoyed this one, but it wasn't going to change my life.
