Publisher's Summary

Blackboard best seller Sugar is the superb first novel by Bernice L. McFadden.
An emotional journey from grief and suffering to understanding and forgiveness, Sugar will keep you listening until its graceful conclusion.
Sugar arrives in the small town of Bigelow, Arkansas, like an ominous storm. She saunters down the street in a blonde wig and spiked heels, cigarette dangling between red-painted lips. Without even speaking to her, the women in town hate her. But when she moves in next door to Pearl, a woman who tragically lost her daughter 15 years earlier, the two women bond over tragic pasts.
In this remarkably vivid novel read by gifted narrator Myra Lucretia Taylor, you can almost smell the blooming magnolias in this 1950s-era town.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Just a beautifully written book. Lyrical, humorous and heart breaking. Ms. McFadden weaves an involved tale of loss, love, friendship and survival. Sugar is a memorable character I won't forget and I'm sure I'll return time and again to reacquaint myself with Pearl and Sugar.

I can't remember a time when I have been moved to tears like this since I read the book "Roots"...The entire books had me in suspense, things started to make since as far as me connecting dots at the end but I never thought that it would have me emotional...The author, and the reader had me on edge and emotional till the end...Thank you for writing this, and teaching me lessons about judging a book by its cover, and living our lives. I have so many other things to say but can't quite put them in to words...
