    This is what i all a hallmark type book Very feelingsy, very fried green tomatoes and all those movies ive never seen a city woman from the middle of the country inherits a big, pre civil war house outside of atlanta, from a relative she didn t know existed right now, the book sounds AWESOME how awesome would it be to get something like that love dealing with issues such as her mom s craziness and insecurities about her girlfriend, she is prejudiced and distracted about selling the house This is what i all a hallmark type book Very feelingsy, very fried green tomatoes and all those movies ive never seen a city woman from the middle of the country inherits a big, pre civil war house outside of atlanta, from a relative she didn t know existed right now, the book sounds AWESOME how awesome would it be to get something like that love dealing with issues such as her mom s craziness and insecurities about her girlfriend, she is prejudiced and distracted about selling the house and the south as a whole she just wants to get it over with but then she meets some people who change her mind about the south and goes through the house, learning its secret i use that word hesitantly, because it wasn t much of a secret at all i won t spoil and say what this is no mystery, no big reveal thing in truth, the only thing she learns isabout herself which is important, but dull if you re not into hallmark feelingsy books obviously, i m not if you re like me, stay away if you re like thousands of women and a lot of men too, then go at it personally, i d have loved to learnabout the history of the house and people than they did, and also the history of the best friend of the dead house owner, an old woman, and just goneinto their character rather than the main woman and the professor and i think the whole thing with her girlfriend was pretty shallow as well the book wasn t meaty enough for me i kept waiting for the big something to happen, i kept waiting to care, i never did

    I enjoyed the first part of the book It would have been good if the author explained a bitwhere the main character s fears came from Yes, mention is made of the bipolar mother but I would have liked that theme to be fleshed out a bit.The second thing that I would have liked is the author delving deeper into the war efforts of women as the history of war is always told from a male perspective.

    Great story woman inherits house with secrets and history Likeable characters, both main and secondary Lovely setting the tree itself But at 210 pages, it just isn t long enough to delve deeply into the various story lines Dhari s mother, Erin s adoption, Addy s secrets The writing is generally good, but I found Nessie s heavy dialect hard to read.
