With a title such as "The Same Sweet Girls" there is a certain expectation and this book meets and exceeds that. The narrator's perfect lilt kept me interested and the light and sweet story that followed a group of women for just about 40 years kept me both entertained and interested.
The Same Sweet Girls are a half dozen wonderfully detailed characters that you will come to love and perhaps side with one more than the other. I can see myself in each of the girls as well as everyone I know.
This book won't move you to greatness but the story soothes the soul and reminds you to concentrate on what is important. I felt like a child being read a story by my favorite aunt when I was listening. It's the perfect escape!
Some of it feels a bit like a package too neatly presented and in another novel that might ruin it but in this case it adds to the comfort of the book. The Same Sweet Girls delivers what it promises!

What a waste of time! I'd like to count how many times the word, "gourd" was used in this book! Seriously - gourds? The last few pages were laughable as the dying woman gave each of her college buddies a little gourd and then left them with instructions for the disbursement of her ashes in her "special" gourd, which each of them caressed as though it were a newborn baby.
I thought I was reading the redneck version of Sinclair Lewis' "Main Street," except for the fact that this wasn't a satire.
