Remember My Beauties
“Lynne Hugo’s writing is beautiful and evocative, earthy and strong. The characters, the setting, and the way she handles tough issues with honesty, grit, and understanding all make for a wonderful read.”—Laura Harrington, author of Alice Bliss
“Remember My Beauties is a lyrical and down-to-earth snapshot of unsympathetic characters who, because they are so clearly defined and motivated, become captivating and heart-achingly beautiful. A pocket of flawed humanity bound by the love of innocent animals elevates this story that shines a light on the value of family, love, and the connections that keep everything on a steady trot.” —Foreword Reviews
“Hugo’s writing might remind some readers of Annie Proulx, although her ear for dialogue is closer to Larry McMurtry’s.... Hugo offers convincing three-dimensional characters with convincing psychic wounds.” —The Wilmington Star News
Imagine a hawk’s view of the magnificent bluegrass pastures of Kentucky horse country. Circle around the remnants of a breeding farm, four beautiful horses grazing just beyond the paddock. Inside the ramshackle house, a family is falling apart.
April 2016, 194 pp., 5.5x8.5
