About this title: This humorous novel by a former stand-up comic is set in White Falls, Minnesota, a town full of eccentrics and the home of lifelong friends, BiDi and Devera. Each woman copes with the approach of middle age in her own way--Devera has an affair with her night-school professor, as BiDi tries gamely to manage amid the non-stop action of her complicated family life. From Library Journal A varied cast of characters takes turns narrating this ultimately upbeat tale of friendship, tears, and laughter from the author of Patty Jane's House of Curl (LJ 8/95). Devera Lindstrom and BiDi Herrera, best friends since high school, are on the cusp of 40. While Devera has an affair with a pretentious college instructor, BiDi uses diet pills to keep her gorgeous body in shape and tries to hide her dissatisfaction with Franny, her athletic teenage daughter. Dick Lindstrom works for his father-in-law and dreams of opening a nightclub in his basement. BiDi's husband, Sergio, adores his hockey-playing stepdaughter but wants to have another child. Dick learns of Devera's affair, Franny is mysteriously beaten up one evening, and BiDi and Sergio's new baby is born prematurely. Yet in the end nearly everyone is happy and fulfilled. Close scrutiny reveals any number of weaknesses, including the overly busy, rather unbelievable plot; the pedestrian writing; and the less-than-three-dimensional characters. But why complain? Read it for what it is: a perfect purchase for popular fiction collections.?Nancy Pearl, Washington Ctr. for the Book, Seattle Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Product Description: Best friends fast approaching forty in the small Minnesota town of Flame Lake, Devera and BiDi were recently voted "Least Changed" at their twentieth high school reunion--a label neither one finds very appealing. For each craves a change in her life: Devera desires a break from her humdrum marital routine; BiDi longs to connect with her distant fourteen-year-old daughter, the only girl on the high school hockey team--not to mention to jump-start a sex drive stuck in neutral. So when Devera's husband decides to fulfill his long-time dream of opening a nightclub in his basement, Your Oasis on Flame Lake arrives not a moment too soon. Nothing fancy, it's just a BYOB joint to hang out in, sing, dance, tell jokes, and be yourself. But then an unexpected crisis throws both families into chaos, forcing them all to take stock of their lives--and learn the power of forgiveness. "A hard-to-put-down novel that finds complexity and intrigue in the simplest of everyday lives and the simple friendships that offer comfort and support . . . Very clearly character driven, the storyline evolves from the nature and motivations of the people Landvik renders." --Middlesex News "The novel builds to a well-crafted and suspenseful climax . . . [It is] a fine, original novel, leavened with humor; very readable." --Louisville Voice Tribune "The story is freckled with laughter, sadness and life in general. It will often remind you that those small things you take for granted are the ones you will remember fondly in years to come." --Rocky Mountain News "In Your Oasis on Flame Lake, each of the characters tells his/her own story. Lorna Landvik skillfully weaves each of these stories into one interesting and attention-holding book." --Marietta Journal "Some writers do comedy really well. Others pen drama best. Luckily for us, some manage to combine true wit and intense conflict in one narrative. Lorna Landvik . . . manages this feat with aplomb in her latest novel." --Boston Tab 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, Fawcett Books, 1998
