I REALLY like this author. She has one other book I will excited to read. This is a great story about family and what makes a family. Great, strong characters. Some very insightful thoughts into the whole family dynamic and life.

First off, I've always loved books about the South. I was excited to read this book and thought it would be no exception. Well, I was a little disappointed. I loved the familiar southern "language" of the book, and the down-home country feel of it. I thought it had a good storyline and great characters, but my 3 stars came into play because of the way the book incessantly dragged. I would've liked seeing more character development for Wynona and Lauralee. I must have quit this book at least 3 ti...more

Loved this. A tender, heart-warming - and heart-rending - book about southern women, who together find the grace and courage to live their lives, help each other and face their tragedies. Very well-written and plotted, with little pointers all the way through hinting at what has gone before. So pleased to have discovered Augusta Trobaugh

A totally delightful book of southern women, both blacks and whites living together and sharing secrets from the past. I really enjoyed this book as sometimes you could not even tell who was black and who was white.

I started this today so not very far yet. I've read other books by this author and liked them alot. My reading right now is limited due to the process of getting ready to move.

rec. in Honey. Eccentric cast of characters--4 women sharing a house, a past, and a secret. Good writing style.
Linda Blake
This is a fantastic book about the connections between women. Lots of good sound bites of wisdom.
Arlene
Another great book by Augusta Trobaugh. She catches the voice of the south so effortlessly!
