Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues, an exuberant and poignant new audiobook of passions, family, and forgiveness.
When a late-life love affair blooms between Mr. Forrest Payne, the owner of the Pink Slipper Gentleman's Club, and Miss Beatrice Jordan, famous for stationing herself at the edge of the club's parking lot and yelling warnings of eternal damnation at the departing patrons, their wedding summons a legend to town. Mr. El Walker, the great guitar bluesman, comes home to give a command performance in Plainview, Indiana, a place he'd sworn - and for good reason - he'd never set foot in again.
But El is not the only Plainview native with a hurdle to overcome. A wildly philandering husband struggles at last to prove his faithfulness to the wife he's always loved. And among those in this tightly knit community who show up every Sunday after church for lunch at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat are the lifelong friends known locally as "The Supremes" - Clarice, facing down her longing for, chance at, and fear of a great career; Barbara Jean, grappling at last with the loss of a mother whose life humiliated both of them; and Odette, reaching toward her husband through an anger of his that she does not understand.
Edward Kelsey Moore's lively cast of characters, each of who has surmounted serious trouble and come into love, need not learn how to survive but how, fully, to live. And they do, every one of them, serenaded by the bittersweet and unforgettable blues song El Walker plays, born of his own great loss and love.

I want to be a member of the Supremes!

It was wonderful to catch-up with the Supremes! The storyline was drawn out a little but still came together nicely. I hope this isn't the last of the Supremes. I also hope that they bring back the original voice actor.
