    a superb reading

    Voice performer Claudia Hughes gives a superb reading of this 'Miss Julia' story, perfectly capturing the modulated, softly Southern tones of our protagonist. The cast of characters gives Hughes ample opportunity to display her talents as she segues to the proclamations of housekeeper, Lillian, and her rambunctious five-year-old great-granddaughter. Hearing Miss Julia is both fun and entertaining, thanks to Claudia Hughes. With this tale Miss Julia may have met her match. Well, if not her match evidently her mate. At long last she has agreed to marry persistent suitor, Sam Murdoch. Yes, she's willing to order new stationery and store her monogrammed linens. As chronicled in 'Miss Julia Meets Her Match,' fifth in a popular series by Ann B. Ross, the road to saying yes has not been smooth, but rather filled with a few shocks, and much laughter. As many know, Miss Julia is a prim, extremely proper Presbyterian lady who has met many a challenge with spirit and determination. That's not always easy to do in the small town of Abbotsville where everyone knows everyone else's business. Nonetheless, in sensible shoes with head held high Miss Julia has overcome a great deal. Wesley Lloyd, her late not great husband was a pillar of the church and an equal opportunity philanderer. He is now gone but surely not forgotten because he left a child. As Miss Julia puts it he dallied for more than a decade with Hazel Marie Puckett who produced a son. Then he left Miss Julia 'to clean up the mess and end up with both mistress and son living under my roof. ' Nonetheless, the two women have become fast friends and both dote on Little Lloyd. There's scant time to dwell on the past as news from Velma's Beauty Shop is astonishing: the pastor's secretary, Norma Cantrell, otherwise known as 'Miss High and Mighty,' was seen leaving the Mountaintop Motel while the married Mayor's car was parked nearby. More startling news: pious and plain Emma Sue, the pastor's wife, has gone to Velma's for an after hours make over. Emma Sue who often says 'there'll be no Avon or Mary Kay products in heaven' now bats 'the longest eyelashes ever seen outside of a package in Eckerd's Drugstore.' This transformation devastates the pastor who fears she will tempt Christians to sin, 'stirring the loins of every man who sees her.' Religion plays a large part in Miss Julia's life, especially since the arrival of Dwayne Dooley. He's a man on a mission 'to do the Lord's work in Abbotsville and environs.' He plans to build a religious theme park on 20 acres of Miss Julia's land. It will be called 'The Walk Where Jesus Walked Christian Theme Park,' and boast a manger with live animals, 'his earthly daddy's carpenter shop in a real-live village,' a temple, Jerusalem, and the cave where Lazarus was buried. Miss Julia's serenity is further interrupted by the arrival of her housekeeper's five-year-old great-granddaughter, Latisha. She's a tiny brown-skinned girl with large eyes and a head full of plaits and barrettes.' 'How you do, ma'am,' the child says upon meeting Miss Julia. 'You got a real nice house somewhere down here in North Car'lina, `cept I don't know where that is, but it's where I'm at now.' Latisha is much more than anyone has bargained for, including Little Lloyd. Both funny and endearing 'Miss Julia Meets Her Match' is peopled with quirky Southerners who charm. Capricious and sometimes even a tad tetched this cast of characters leads listeners on a merry romp that ends too soon.
