Publisher's Summary

Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and unceremoniously announces that the child is the bastard son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime church member and pillar of her small Southern community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal - and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.
With razor-sharp wit and perfect "Steel Magnolia" poise, Miss Julia speaks her mind indeed - about a robbery, a kidnapping, and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death. Fast-paced and charming, with a sure sense of comic drama, a cast of crazy characters, and a strong Southern cadence, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind will delight listeners from first minute to the last.

Silly, but sweet

Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind grasped my attention and charmed me in the first chapter! The narrator's sweet southern accent and quick speech pattern remained consistent throughout the book. The characters' personalities were all fleshed out quickly and each easy to imagine. On the other hand, some of the scenes droned on and on and were a little farfetched. Still, the book made me laugh out loud a couple times and I just put up with the ridiculousness of some of the plot pieces. The religious characters certainly could be compared to some of the silly, self-righteous, brainwashed, hypocritical people in my life!
