Praise for An Ode for Orchids
"An Ode for Orchids" is a well written book. The flow is magnificent in that it allowed you to follow each woman's life to understand what was going on. James Fant does an excellent job of focusing on issues we all deal with; addiction, forgiveness and true love to name a few. I highly recommend this to others.
