    Set in Appalachia in the years before World War II, Velva Jean Learns to Drive is a poignant story of a spirited young girl growing up in the gold-mining and moonshining South. Before she dies, Velva Jean's mother urges her to "live out there in the great wide world." Velva Jean dreams of becoming a big-time singer in Nashville until she falls in love with Harley Bright, a handsome juvenile delinquent turned revival preacher.

    Susan says: "If Jenna Lamia reads it, I'll listen to it!"
    "Loved this book!!!"

  • Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By Beth Hoffman
    • Narrated By Jenna Lamia

    Story
    (1145)

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"
    "I loved it! Great story and Jenna's awesome."

    What made the experience of listening to Saving Ceecee Honeycutt the most enjoyable?

    Jenna does such a fabulous job reading the story. I got the audible because I loved her so much with her reading of The Help. Turned out to be a fabulous book too!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Original story. You are always rooting for Ceecee.


    What does Jenna Lamia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Everything. She is phenomenal.


    If you could rename Saving Ceecee Honeycutt, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't
