Every town has at least one beloved if misunderstood eccentric, and Beanie Bradsher belongs to Mayhew Junction. Some - LouWanda Crump, for example - would call Beanie a spectacle, but Beanie just marches - and dresses - to the beat of a different drum.
Not much has changed over the years in this town. On any given morning, you'll find the same people at the same table at the same cafe, and none of them have changed one iota in the past 20 years. But now Beanie Bradsher has won the lottery and might be dating Sweet Lee Atwater's husband. And the hometown basketball star Vesuvius Jones just got a face full of red velvet cake at the trunk-or-treat.
The gossip has never been juicier, which might just be a good thing. Lord knows this town could use a good shaking up.
