Five Miles South of Peculiar
Paperback, 366 pages
I love to read any book that is set in the South as I live in South Carolina myself. So when this book came alone I wanted to read and review it, so thanks to Glass Roads for sending me this book free for my review.
The story starts out in Jackson County, Florida when old man Caldwell drew his last breath on July 3, 1968. Darlene was only six when her grandpa passed and she loved him and thought him to be a genuis in the things he could do. As the years passes Darlene lived and raised her family in the same house her grandpa had died in. She was right as rain being the "Queen" of the community until her twin sister returns home.
Then her sister Carlene lost her career as a Broadway star when she could no longer sing so she returns to Sycamore where she had lived as a child. Then alone came the other sister Magnolia when she torn apart by a broken romance. Nolie the other sister had never left Sycamore and never wanted to, she just wanted to stay put and care for her dogs.
How will these sisters ever get alone? I laughted and cried alone with them and wish I still had my sister to disagree with. I had six siters but they are all gone now and I feel so alone sometimes. I really enjoyed this book, I have read other of Angela's books but I believe this is my favorite.
