Making Wavesby Cassandra King
In a small Alabama town, life is finally looking up for twenty-year-old Donnette Sullivan. She's just inherited her aunt's house and beauty shop, and her recently crippled husband is beginning to cope with the loss of his dreams. Yet the opening of the shop leads to a surprising sequence of events. Making Waves is about love, friendship, and betrayal, and about unfulfilled desires and heartbreaking losses. Once the waves of change begin, the lives of the people in this small town are inexorably altered.

I loved this novel for its descriptions of the town of Zion and the wonderful characters. The final chapter with its big social conscience finish didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the novel, but I've known so many older women like all the 'aunts' in the book. Read it for the enjoyable character descriptions.
i couldn't wait to read this because i'd liked the author's other book so well. it was very different but did not disappoint me.
I loved falling into King's bucket of southern small time life. It was a hoot to read about Mt. Zion, and it's colorful inhabitants. At first, I thought that the ending didn't exactly fit the rest of the story, but after sleeping on the completed story, it was the perfect method to show the strength of the women living in Mt Zion. Southern women have their own tap dance to life and heaven help a person if they mess around with their family.
Loved this book for its humor and sensitivity while probing important truths. Most striking of all was the authenticity of each voice that told the story! A really good read. Would love to hear an audio version done by a real Southerner
True southern flair! Good story, but disapointing ending.
Love Cassandra's books, but this one wasn't my favorite. Wished for a different ending...
