In a tiny town in Georgia, where the women, old and young alike are all (but one) named after hymns, and everybody looks after their neighbors . . . everything starts to unravel when, Love Divine, one of the Bird Watching Society and library supporters passes away . . . when a stranger from "up north" starts looking at Love Divine's house and small farm and then decides to buy it, things start going downhill fast . . . one of their tight group of bird watchers, Sweet (by and by) takes a liking to the handsome retired judge from New York . . . and in no time flat, he is courting her . . . and to the chagrin of her friends, marries her . . . quickly . . . and NOT in church either . . . it doesn't take long for The Judge to show his true colors . . . and Sweet's friends realize that he is abusive and dangerous . . . this is a good tale of the closeness in a small southern town, the sadness of spouse abuse, and the power of those with money and social status over others . . . and it rings true . . . no matter where you're from . . . I love the different personalities of each of the women of the Bird Watching Society, their quirkiness, spunk, and perseverance . . . turtle stew and all!

Delightful from beginning to end. Augusta always delivers a sweet story. A page turner to boot. Thank you
