This book is about 3 generations of southern women in a dysfunctional, yet somewhat typical family of their respective time periods. They did what they had to do to survive. Very rich, strong characters....a mixture of both happiness and despair. However, I did not find this book to be fun, humorous, or a light read.

This is a great story!! There is an unexpectedly brutal introduction which segues into a rich multi-generational saga. I highly recommend it.

A multi-generational story of 6 Tennessee ladies, from Miss Gussie, her 2 daughters Dorothy and Clancy Jane, and their daugthers, Violet and Bitsy. The family is rounded out by Queenie, who keeps them all semi-sane. Great characters!

this is not your typical run of the mill southern women's novel...but on the other hand it is like one. the quirky charachters,the laughs the tears...the general confusion. the chapters are titled by who is talking and what year it is. it is 3 generations of women and what is going on around them from the early thirties thru Viet Nam to the early 70's.

A novel of the lives of three generations of Tennessee. You can find a little of most women you know in one of these characters.
