What I thought:
I really liked this book. I did not get emotional and cry reading it, but it is a really sweet book that is truly touching. This book is very quotable. The elderly neighbor lady and maid are the cutest and they have the best quotes in the book. I love reading southern lit. and this book is 100% southern.
3 out of 5 stars
