Publisher's Summary

Although they come from different ways of life, both Bonnie and Ruth are experiencing drastic changes. After discovering that her husband has lost all of their money and has left her broke, Bonnie Duke Cullman is abandoning her comfortable life in Atlanta to teach at a community college in rural Alabama. Ruth Elkin just lost her sewing job at the Cherished Lady factory, and now she must attend college classes to get back on track. The two women's lives become unexpectedly intertwined, and together they survive the ups and downs of small town life. Battle pens a novel full of conviction, courage, and a colorful cast of quirky, honest characters. Cristine McMurdo-Wallis' narration perfectly portrays the tenderness and strength of these women's friendships.

Not the uplifting book I'd expected

What disappointed you about The Florabama Ladies' Auxiliary & Sewing Circle?

The book just doesn't take off like I'd expected. After listening to many of the Elm Creek Quilting Books, I was expecting something similar. This is an entirely different type of book and just not what I wanted to listen to.

What was most disappointing about Lois Battle’s story?

It wasn't really based on the characters' shared love of quilting as I'd expected.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The reader was fine.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I enjoyed the character, Ruth, and her challenge to become a teacher.

Any additional comments?

I don't think this is a bad book....just not a really good one.
