In Poor Man's Province, Rheta Grimsley Johnson manages something that is difficult to do in life and in writing; she balances true love with a level head. She admits early to being a tourist. She says,"Living for a decade in a place doesn't give me the right to report as a native". "She vows that she has learned more from her neighbors than about them.
Insightful without being nosy, clever without being smug, funny without poking fun, this is one of those welcoming books, like some of the Acadian households Johnson describes, where everyone feels at home. Both her readers and the people she writes about will be comfortable, well fed, highly entertained, and happy they came to Poor Man's Province".
