Editorial Reviews

Kathryn Tucker Windham tells tales of her hometown of Thomasville, Alabama, from the time before WWII. Her Southern accent is REAL - soft, melodious, and easy on the ear. These stories, which some may call quaint, are those of life in most any small town, with its everyday cast of characters and events, and will strike a chord with those who have experienced this lifestyle. Windham's pace is that of a nice, comfortable rock. Occasionally, there are sound effects between the stories that add to the "small-town" atmosphere.

Publisher's Summary

Close your eyes and you can almost feel the rocking of the chair as you listen. Kathryn Tucker Windham's gentle Southern accent winds its way through these childhood and adult recollections, while her traditional wisdom and sharp sense of humor eventually break the spell she casts like a blanket over her listeners. Exploring the idea that being with and understanding your family is perhaps the most important lesson of all, Ms. Windham takes us out to her front porch in the morning, to the little Methodist church, across the Alabama River, and all the way to Washington, D.C. - then back home to rock and admire the purple martins. The little town of Thomasville, Alabama, blooms on the ridge between the rivers, and it is brought into focus by this truly Southern storyteller.

Storytelling at its best

I know these are short but to me, well worth the money. I've purchased all of the available audiobooks by this storyteller, which I think is an apt description. Her stories all center on life down South in an era gone by. Very easy enjoyable listening.
