really liked it

I was looking for some more Southern Women Writers when I found Jill McCorkle. Tending to Virginia is an interesting book. It is the story of Virginia who is suffering from pregnancy complications. As she lies delirious,and her family is tending to her needs, we learn about the generations of her family in a series of vignettes. She had some pretty quirky relatives, including a nutty grandmother and a friend, Cyndi, who thinks all there is to life is finding a man. (She has already found 3 to marry) A pretty good story even though it jumps from 1 narrator to another.

Poor Virginia suffers throught her "tending to" with a lot of grace and a few ruffled feathers. She survives the experience, thank goodness.
