If you enjoy Southern fiction and 1950-1960's social change therein, you will enjoy this novel. It has its humorous moments but the reality of giving up your one true love for his own good is extremely poignant. Bezillia is a strong southern belle who tries to break the social restrictions of her time. The reader finds themselves cheering for her success but it is not meant to be!
This is a quick and entertaining read well worth your time...possibly more for a feminine reader but not necessarily.
