really liked it
bookshelves: southern-novels

I was not expecting this book to be much more than a bath-tub novel. I was pleasantly surprised by Despres' knack for humorous and touching story telling.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in the novel and the skillful weaving of a southern community in the 1950's. The historical references were accurate, and the overall "feel" of the novel was well crafted and highly enjoyable.

It was quite simply a delightful read. It far exceeded my expectations of being a simple summer read and is now one of my favorite books currently. Highly enjoyable, highly recommendable.
