Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and unceremoniously announces that the child is the bastard son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime church member and pillar of her small Southern community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal - and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.
With razor-sharp wit and perfect "Steel Magnolia" poise, Miss Julia speaks her mind indeed - about a robbery, a kidnapping, and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death. Fast-paced and charming, with a sure sense of comic drama, a cast of crazy characters, and a strong Southern cadence, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind will delight listeners from first minute to the last.

Narrator ruimed this book, I have listened to ALL Miss Julia books; love them and the Cynthia Darlow is perfect for these books!!!
When Little Lloyd gives Miss Julia the "present" his daddy gave him!
She brought the characters to life. She gave each person a voice that made the book a joy to listen to.
Miss Julia. I loved the way, as the story progressed, her perspective changed about her situation and the people involved!
We've all heard the saying "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Well, Miss Julia and Hazel Marie do just that!
I enjoyed this book, the narrator really made this character loveable and you found yourself rooting for her.
Her voice, accent, timing....it was all very impressive
Too long to listen to in one setting I believe. My commute to work is 45 min and I enjoy listening to books during my commute.
