It is the town of a small town in south Georgia who is confronted with the 21st century, not only in the guise of a gay couple that moves to town (one half of the couple a local football hero), but also in the remarriage of Boone, a blues musician. There are secrets that are uncovered and a collection of characters you will love, especially if you are from the south or from a small town!
Ms. Sutton's characterizations are spot on-- I know these people!! My favorite is Nell-- a cantankerous soul who reminds me of Ouiser from Steel Magnolias. She is a character who is hurting and who hides that pain with a hedge that keeps everyone out.
The novel is told with some flashbacks and in short vignettes that gives the reader a glimpse of life in this small imaginary time.
Kudos, Brenda! I am looking forward to your next book!
