I found this to be a delightful, warm, charming story that made me smile and made me think. I loved the small town feel of the story and the believeable characters. I know these people, I have them in my family. It's not a new book, but it's traditional in feel.

Very funny, although my favorite Clyde Edgerton book remains "Walking across Egypt".

This has to be one of the funnest books I have ever read. I laughed so hard thru out the book. Being born and raised in the south, I truly felt like I was reading about my relatives. I st6ill have my copy and will not give it up...but if you see one listed...grab it.

Raney is a small-town Baptist. Charles is a liberal from Atlanta. And RANEY is the story of their marriage.

A comic novel which traces the rocky marriage between opposites who make it through two years, two months, and two days of togetherness, with a little help from their counselor.

Charming, wise, funny, and truthful, it is a novel for everyone to love.

Raney is a gemand a captivating character-a female Huck Finn whose voyage of discovery takes her into the treacherous currents of marriage. This book is too good to keep to yourself. Read it aloud to someone you love then send it to a friend but keep a copy yourself because you'll want to read it again and again. Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey author of "A woman of Independent Means".
She burrows her way into the reader's heart and even when you suspect her motives are less than virtuous you can't help cheering her to victory. This trip through Raney's mind is a marvelously fresh and funny journey." Janet Majerus author of "Grandpa and Frank".
