2017 Kansas Notable Book. 2017 IPPY Bronze Award. ''I come from a long line of storytellers, which isn’t my fault.'' So begins the tale of Catherine “Cat” Peters, who ushers us into the days when heat, wind, and dust eat men’s souls away; when a young girl’s innocence weighs precariously against a few coins; and when the savior turns out to be the destroyer. Set in rural Kansas during the Depression, events eerily echo the happenings in Europe. It turns out the whole world needs more flamingos. Kirkus Reviews says, ''It is a testament to Diller’s authorial strength that, through the despair, she weaves in disarming humor . . . a vivid, surprising page-turner.''
