    Set on the Mississippi Delta in 1923, this story captures the mind and manners of the Fairchilds, a large aristocratic family, self-contained and elusive as the wind. The vagaries of the Fairchilds are keenly observed, and sometimes harshly judged, by nine-year-old Laura McRaven, a Fairchild cousin who takes The Yellow Dog train to the Delta for Dabney Fairchild’s wedding.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, to someone who enjoys slow, quiet stories that focus on the everyday circumstances of life. As always, Welty creates memorable characters that we can relate to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was the mother. Welty characterized her as strong yet vulnerable.


    Have you listened to any of Sally Darling’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I often chuckled at Welty's details--she is so good with them. In many passages, I wished that I were reading a written copy of the book so that I could go back and reread them as many times as I wished. Her writing is so beautiful and moving.
