I enjoyed Gods in Alabama so much that I wanted to read more from Joshilyn Jackson. Between Georgia was also a very good, touching, heart-wrenching story about women trying to find their way in this world. Strong characters, strong plot, great story!

I really enjoyed this book. It mixes life in a small southern town and current city life. It opens the world of the deaf and blind. It bespeaks of levels of mental health. What makes family family? What we dislike or are intolerant in others is often our own deficits.

If you liked Gods in Alabama, you are sure to like this one as well. Joshilyn Jackson does it again with a book that you will love to read and will be sad to finish... because you won't want it to be over. The first half of the book is a bit slow because there is so much background story that has to be told. Once you hit the second half though, you will NOT be able to put it down. Great story! Great writing! I highly recommend this author and I highly reocmmend this book. You won't be disappointed.

This book is about a young woman, Nonny Jane Frett, caught between two families in the very small town of Between, Georgia, the Crabtrees, from whom she was stolen, and the Fretts, by whom she was raised. If that wasn't enough cause for drama, throw in the fact that Nonny has two men in her life, Henry Crabtree, who has been in love with her for ages, and Jonno, her husband. This book is filled with unique characters, crazy, deaf, blind, criminal, this book has it all, another great book by Joshilyn Jackson, although I thought 'Gods in Alabama' was far better. This one starts off with a bang, slows down a bit in the middle, then picks up pace at the end, an enjoyable read overall! I'm beginning to like southern fiction.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm adding this author to my favorites list. Her writing style is entertaining and the characters are solid. I found myself laughing hysterically, tearing up, and holding my breath all in a matter of a few pages.

You won't be disappointed with this one!

Loved this book - my first from this author. Easy read - started off quickly and I wanted to continue from cover to cover. Loved so much, I ordered Gods In Alabama which I believe was written prior to Between, Georgia.

Read this book if you enjoy quirky characters and family disfunction. It's a fast,
entertaining, read about love, loyalty, and all things human.
