This book was not a typical read that I could predict. There were twist and turns that held my interest. I found myself antsy to get in my car waiting to hear the next few chapters on my way to work!
Teddi was a real character, down home, loving, smart, courageous, and determined to say the least. She had a great family, yet they had their issues - minor ones, but issues none the less.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the South, the East Coast, the accents, antiques, and old history.
I am not from the East Coast, but these are kind of books I search for the most.
Loved it! Beth Hoffman wrote Cee Cee Honeycutt and I thoroughly enjoyed that book as well!
What a life to have led!!! Wonderful characters, narrator, and story line! Some people were so critical back then and unforgiving. Beattie Blacksland worked so hard to get ahead and it paid off for her. She didn't let the naysayers get the best of her.
Historial books are my favorite. History is important, I think, so that we know what happened before we were all here. I will listen to this book again.
Liked the book alot. Almost felt sorry for the husband, but the secret he kept, deserved to be told. Would read this book again, like the narration too!
Best book ever! Absolutely could not wait to jump in my car and listen! Great narration, characters - what an imagination by the author! I am sure that the things that are in this book really happened back in the early 1900s. People were so proper and stressed about their good name and reputation, that they would do almost anything to protect it. I was sad when the story ended and I hope there is a sequel !
I am having so much fun following Weezie and Bebe! They are fun, spunky, and full of adventure. Great narration too !! This was not a long book, but I look forward to many more books by Mary Kay and the adventures of Weezie Foley!
Jenna has a voice that makes stories come to life! I enjoy listening to her. This book about Abilene takes some twists and turns and kept my attention. I like early 1900 books and the adventures the characters encounter.
I like Mary Kay Andrews! Weezie is a great character and the things she encounters, very funny LOL I like sequels and her and Bay Bay or Be Be and great adventures together.
I love to listen to the antiques Weezie finds!! Although I prefer the original narrator for Mary Kay.
Recommended : )
Tootie and Cee Cee are awesome ! Aunt Tootie is a kick and I loved her accent. Cee Cee is picking up the pieces and doing a great job of it. Felt sorry for her a bit, but she bounces back and lives a great life.
Love the narrator, Jenna Lamia ...... and the southern accents!!
What a life for a young girl to go through! Lily proves that she is smart and is a very loving, caring person. She accomplishes her travels and learns so much throughout. She is strong and determined.
Lovely book, would listen to again and I highly recommend.
What a shocker, yet so real life for some I think! One has to feel sorry for Grace, but she is a strong woman and proves she is a winner !! Loved the book and I really liked the length of it. I like long books that have a story and this book kept going and going - each chapter different and unpredictable.
