I LOVE THIS BOOK! It's politically incorrect, as it was written decades ago, about the south, but the voice is hilarious and the characters are wonderful, and Bodecker's art is, as always, awesome!
I had fallen in love with this author (wife of the famous historian Henry Steele Commager) years ago, finding her book, Cousins, unexpectedly in the Chappaqua, NY library because of its winsome N.M. Bodecker illustrations. This book is just as charming and has echoes of Betsy-Tacy in the heroines' plotting.
