Bailey White is a master of the craft. Again, wonderful story writing as only Bailey can do it. Lorna Raver somehow puts it all together and breaths life into the story. You can really feel and live the stories. This is true treasure to keep in my audio library to listen to again and again. Bailey White can always be enjoyed and will never grow dull or out of date. This is a true classic just like a favorite pair of jeans.
This was a neat collection of southern short stories I’m not sure why they say they are holiday themed because really they’re not, but good none the less. I would say the theme is aging & gardening, southern style.
Some of these stories were sad/touching, some were funny, most were both but all left me wanting more. Just a warning these aren’t happy stories but they are good stories I would recommend this for southern fiction lovers.
I listened to this one on audio narrated by, Lorna Raver who as always does a great job.
3 ½ Stars
Could not tell when one short story started and one ended
I thought they would be Christmas stories, they were not...
All very depressing
Would not recommend to ANYONE
We read it as a book club and it was unanimous
The voices were not BAD
I am surprised NPR would put these out
These were odd stories, and an even stranger narrator. Hard to listen to, but then I can't complain - it was free!
