About this title

Synopsis:

Set mainly in the small towns of Alabama, the stories in this collection ache with the relentless longing of the poor, struggling, usually discarded southern women who tell us their lives. Women who married too fast, had children too young, drink to much, but feel as deep as any.

Review:

"Jennifer Davis writes like a magician. She writes of the ordinary and the amazing with equal precision, making us believe there is no difference between the two. She catches us up between her heartache for and her terror of the South, until the most northern among us think we were born there. She leaves us breathless and amazed--saddened, hopeful, wanting only more."
