CIRCLING HOME in Booklist: "Lane’s forays took him from a posh country club golf course to the local sewage treatment plant, through an abandoned graveyard, and past a burned-out ironworks. Each locale inspired eloquent and esoteric essays about the archaeological and ecological wonders found beneath his feet. Taken together, his descriptive reports create a painstakingly intricate portrait of the land he lovingly calls home."
DEPTH THEOLOGY in the Modern Review
GEORGIA QUILTS in Southern Living: "It's nice to see what was once dismissed as 'women's work' finally getting it's due . . . GEORGIA QUILTS offers more than quilts. It gives us the women who made them and 200 years of the Georgia in which they lived. It shows that so-called women's work is as much a part of the fabric of our state's heritage as wars and politics. Amen to that."
