Wonderful summer beach read debut novel about twelve year old Cecelia Rose Honeycutt’s climb out from under a frightful childhood with a mentally disturbed mother and an absentee father. Great Aunt Tootie sweeps in to give Cee Cee a life of privilege and healing in Savannah, Georgia complete with the nurturing, lovable cook, Oletta. Granted, this being 1967, you know there will be racial issues, small town snobbery and some dark clouds of madness. But all of this is swept away by Aunt Tootie’s deep well of kindness and Oletta’s fierce devotion and wealth of wisdom. Overrun with the typically raging eccentric, relentlessly upbeat, sweet as molasses Southern women you come to expect, this is a breezy book, in fact very close to being a fairy tale almost exclusively peopled by women. Pour yourself a cool southern beverage and enjoy.
