Publisher's Summary

"Some women can touch a man and heal like Jesus. The man who sees sunrise from a Belle woman's bed will swear he's been born again."

So begins Paula Wall's funny, poignant, and sexy novel, The Rock Orchard. Musette Belle could lay her hand on a baby's heart and see his life as if he'd already lived it. Even in death, she continues to shock the good citizens of Leaper's Fork, Tennessee, and her descendents are doing their best to carry on her legacy. Angela Belle, a haunting and beautiful siren, lures every man she meets into greatness, while her illegitimate and very independent daughter, Dixie, serves tea and vanilla wafers to the statue of the Confederate soldier she believes is her father. But when Charlotte Belle, a woman who would rather spend the night with Jack Daniels than any man she knows, seduces a stranger in the cemetery, it not only transforms the two people involved but the entire town.

Blending sensuality, wisdom, and wry wit to create a truly unique love story, The Rock Orchard is about the strength of community, the might of God, and the ultimate power of extraordinary women.

    Story
    "Laugh Out Loud"
    Where does The Rock Orchard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Performance and the story takes me to another world. I wish I had a Charlotte Belle in my life. Paula Wall can write a story with unpredictable endings. I read the about 3 times and I most enjoy listening to audio books on roadtrips.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Truly makes me laugh out loud a lot and all the southern cliches.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    I've heard Susan's voice on other audio books and I enjoy the sound of her voice, how she can take on a character, male and female.
