Picks and Pans Review: Murphy's Romance
Murphy Jones, a 50ish widower, sells his Oregon store and moves to a little Southern California town, where he falls in love with a horse trainer named Toni. She loves him not, but Murphy, a warm, wonderful character, marries her aunt and spends the next few years watching over Toni and being dismayed by her love life. This gentle, comic novel is told almost entirely in dialogue—the most authentic Western talk to come along in years. And seldom has love, in its infinite variety, been treated more believably and delightfully. (Harper & Row, $8.95)
