Abstract: How does landscape influence character? What ties the inner landscape of a character to the world they inhabit? With Regards from Frankel City, a novel told in retrospect by a female character in Frankel City, Texas, explores these questions through the intertwining of relationships, community and setting. Spanning more than thirty years, JoDell Orsak, the narrator, and her unlikely roommate and 1977 Frankel City High School Homecoming Queen, Homily Hope Walpole, seek success, friendship and immortality in small town Texas. With the Colorado River valley serving as both backdrop and character, JoDell and Homily fight for their small-town legacy, their greatest inheritance - to have their stories told for years to come over a glass of tea at the Dixie Dog Diner.
