Publisher's Summary

In this exuberant portrayal of post-WWI small-town sins and Southern mores, Rita Mae Brown revisits Runnymede, Maryland, a most beguiling Southern town and home to the beloved characters introduced in Six of One, Bingo, and Loose Lips.

Set against the backdrop of America emerging from World War I, Cakewalk provides an entertaining look at a small town straddling the Mason Dixon line, where the townsfolk remain split between good and bad, or love and sex, or male and female, or politics and sobriety, and the inimitable, irrepressible, distinctly free-thinking Hunsenmier sisters, Louise and Julia - otherwise known as Wheezie and Juts - and their wide circle of equally indelible friends are coming of age. An outrageous, affecting, and surprising story of passion, rivalry, and small town antics only Rita Mae Brown could create.

Great Storytelling by Rita Mae Brown

Familiar folks with a whole new story. I never wanted it to end. Told in an entirely new way, these characters are once again brought to life and leave you wanting so much more. Absolute fun and a great performance in the telling of the tale. If you're cheering for the North or betting on the South, you'll be happy you're there for the show.
