Brings tears to your soul and then the sunshine dries them right up

Got my hands on a pre-pub ARC and I must say, I feel very fortunate indeed to have this early sneak peak. The characters are so real, you close the book wanting more; in fact, I miss them - Aunt Tootie, Oletta, Mrs Odell - they were my friends too. CeeCee is a young girl we can all relate to, with her normal fears and blunders and her good-hearted soul. The writing is phenomenal - don't speed read or you might miss an important piece of the landscape of this delightful novel. For a first-time novelist, Beth Hoffman has hit a homerun right out of the park. She takes you from tears streaming down your face to nervous anticipation, relief and outright joy and then does it again, all in what seems to be the blink of an eye. Be sure to set aside enough time to read the entire book in one sitting - yes, it's that kind of feel-good read. I'll definitely be in line to get a signed hard copy in January and plan to re-read it several times.

Many thanks to the many big mouth plot spoilers, including the ones who revealed the ending of the book, now we dont have to buy the book. You saved us the cost of the book. When will you rude ppl ever learn that the rest of us just might want to read the book for ourselves and not have you book report it for us?????? Just stop with the plot spoilers. State if u liked it or not, dont rewrite the danged book, or give a detailed synopsis.

    Not so much.

    I swallowed the publicity hook, line and sinker. If this novel was to be Steel Magnolias meets The Help, I was in. While enjoyable in a not-required-to-think-la-la-land sort of way, that sort of mindless romp was not what I was hoping for. There are some unexpected turns in the plot, which I commend, but the novel, for me, is only milquetoast.

    Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

    Readable but sappy and not true to life; nothwithstanding its status as fiction, its description of the main character's life is a fairytale; the dynamics of race relations is wholly false, and the last few chapters paint a picture of cotton candy life

    Southern Fluff

    This was quite an unbelievable fairy tale. CeeCee's mother dies and twelve-year-old CeeCee gets "adopted" by an overly sweet, rich aunt whom she has not seen since she was a baby. Seems kind of strange that CeeCee had not met or known about this aunt prior to this, especially with her exemplary southern kindness the author bragged about. I also found it strange how little emotional baggage CeeCee carried away from her upbring. The characters and plot lacked depth and believability.
