Sunburnt Farmlands of the Midwest is a collection of stories that create a powerful and vivid picture of life in mid-west America. Each story, though separate, feels part of a larger whole. One can imagine these characters living next to each other as they deal with their own personal hardships.

The novel is reminiscent of Winesburg, Ohio in form. The writing is very effective and flows nicely. The reader gets a clear sense of the setting and atmosphere the characters live in. Roy Miller paints a realistic tableau of an American way of life that is all too real for most people.
