I loved the novel, The Help, and was pleasantly surprised to find this narrator to be one from that novel. I love many genres, suspense, humor and you tend to pick out a book to go with what you are in the mood for at that time. This is a "comfort food" novel. It is a pleasant journey into the south in the 60s through a young woman who has had a tough journey. It is about healing and the love that a group of women can provide. Although slow at times and not a complicated plot, it is vibrant in its descriptions and knowledge of the times. I would recommend this to young women of all ages as an easy listen. It is a comforting place to escape for a few hours when you want something light.

What a great story! This is not a super exciting book nor is it a love story. It is simply a terrific well written narrative of a young girl who was dealt a lousy hand in the parent department who with the help a a large cast of fantastic (mostly Southern )women is able to overcome her lonliness and shame and go on to become a lovely young women. I bought it to listen on my ipod while I walked but I found myself finishing it in 3 days Because it was too good to put down.
Not to take away from the outstanding writing of Beth Hoffman but the incredible variety of voices by Jenna Lamia really made this book come alive. I highly reccomend it!
