Reminiscent of a more simple way of life

If you love to escape the "hurry, hurry, full of chaos, always on the run" lifestyle that seems to be demanded of us today, perhaps you will enjoy this as much as I did. It's a "meandering" slice of life story about a group of ladies in a small Alabama town set in the Great Depression era....their personalities, their gardens, their families, their "making do", their gossip at the beauty parlor and more. I loved getting to know them and listening as they solved the mysteries of a murder and bank embezzlement. It's southern and sweet and reminded me of stories my mother and grandmother told of how they the south, of course. If you love gardening, you will find particular delight in Ms. Albert's book. I'm a great fan of her China Bayles series that is full of herbs and flowers and gardening wound through the mysteries. A pleasant, easy listening book....just what I needed. (Mrs. B)

This book was wonderful. I found myself laughing out loud several times at the shinanigans of the characters.
