I love the book so far. I am about half way through chapt 3 with
Minny's story begun. I, too, am impressed with the authentic
dialogues.....often it is distracting but this flows easily.
I feel so badly for the Baby Girl....reaching out for her mother who
never holds her.
I think Minny would be a great friend, so fun to be around. I am
suspecting that Minny and Miss Celia will become close through the
process of teaching Miss Celia how to take care of a house. I feel
sorry for Celia already, first when she was rejected from
volunteering her time to help the ladies from Jackson, and then when
I read that she had to leave the house exactly as her MIL had it
I am guessing laxatives in Miss Hilly's pie?
I think those questions should be left for a little later in the book
as I don't want any spoilers.
Ok, back to the book--I love it when I find a book like this that I
don't want to put down! Thanks, chippy,for suggesting this and all
who are joining in.
