"The author of the acclaimed Crazy Ladies has captured the color, eccentricities and tragicomedy that the best Southern writers do so well."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review
--New York Times Book Review
"West has created characters who are so teeming with life you would have to stand back to create some breathing room if you met them."
--Washington Post Book World
"Not since Flannery O'Connor's first book has a debt by a young Southerner been so filled with wry humor and humanity, so precisely right in its idioms, and so distinctive in its voices."
Quick, fluff read.A little drama thrown in. Follows 3 odd southern sisters and the roads their lives take back to their hometown. If you liked others by this autor you'll like this one. She has her own style which most either really enjoy or really don't.
The first thing i noticed was this was written by the author of Crazy Ladies. Second thing i noticed is it takes place in the south. Now i know i am gonna like this read. I did--Alot.
It takes place in Tennessee and is about 3 girls raised by their Grandmother. This story is full of life, funny and a wonderful page turner. It offers love, death and a whole lot of small-town eccentricities, which i love about the south. I'd read this again and enjoy it just as much the second time around. If you enjoy this kind of read, i think you'll like this one also.
