Then Howe has a stroke while sitting up in church, and when he wakes up, he's at the mercy of all his appetites and emotions. Transformed, Howe wants to be a real husband - which scares proper, repressed Elizabeth to death - and setting out to right past wrongs, he blackmails the town's baddies into doing the right thing by threatening to foreclose on their mortgages. The ensuing hilarious rollercoaster ride wakes up not only Elizabeth and their marriage but the whole town and its hidebound institutions.

Found Another Southern Jewel!!!
Funny, nostalgic, excellent message, and SOUTHERN!!! What can beat that? This is my first Haywood Smith novel, but you can be sure I'll be looking for more . . . I love the honest way she just "puts it out there" . . . she's spot on with her descriptions of high school cliques, rich southern society, and the shame of growing up "on the other side of the tracks". I know quite a few "stiff, high society" folks that I'd like to slip this audio book to . . . it'd do them a world of good to have a bump on the head and wake up like Howell did :)

This is one of the best authors on the planet! She writes about characters everyone can relate to, and she weaves her story well. I highly recommend this book --- the narrator brings life to each character and helps the reader relate to everyone's perspective. Once you start listening, you will not want the book to end!
