As a Yankee living in the South, I was very interested to see how my experiences compared to the ones in this book. I too, moved to a new city with no family or friends there. Just had to wing it, so to speak. I completely understood getting used to the customs, food and slower way of life compared to when I lived up North.
Ms. Delarose wrote a good story with likable characters. Ms. Howlett gave each character their own voice and kept me interested in the book. I thought the book ended a little suddenly and I would have like to have known what happened with Dottie after the final scenes.
All in all, I would recommend this book to others.

What did you love best about Yankee, Go Home?
It's a great fish-out-of-water story about a young Yankee woman's experiences living in the South. As a Yankee myself, I found it easy to identify with the writer, and her descriptions of the people she meets and unexpected things that happen in her life there. She manages to keep her sense of humor no matter what. She clearly learns to love her new home, quirks and all. I thought it was a very positive look at culture differences.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Yankee, Go Home?
The chapter in which the writer deals with bugs is memorable. She dealt with the problem with a lot of thought and fortitude.
Any additional comments?
The narration is wonderful, very pleasant to listen to. The narrator's voice enhances the book, and doesn't get in the way of the story.
