Overview

When it comes to family,
love, tradition and pride are a powerful brew . . .
The third of the Sweet Tea story collections (SWEET TEA & JESUS SHOES, MORE SWEET TEA) treats readers to a panorama of Southern life, both then and now. Family dramas, comic mishaps, sentimental remembrances and poignant choices illuminate these thirteen stories by new and established authors. There's something for every reader: The gritty realism of a hunt for wild boars, the gentle grieving for a home now filled only with memories, the funny battle between a woman and her recipe for deviled eggs, and much more.
Come sit a spell on the front porch. Prop your feet up, sip a cold glass of sweet iced tea, and lose yourself in a way of life that's as irresistible as pecan pie and as unforgettable as a chilled slice of watermelon on a hot summer day. Welcome to a place that exists between the pages of How It Was and How It Might Have Been-just a little bit south of the long path home.

    Martina Boone's work in SWEETER THAN TEA, Bringing Lula Home, is

    Martina Boone's work in SWEETER THAN TEA, Bringing Lula Home, is a living example of how quality writing craft not only matters, but brings the story about an artist reclaiming her passion, family secrets and reconciliation, to life.

    As an author who has yet to complete a novel under 100k, I was amazed at how seamlessly Martina fashioned such a poignant, compelling story with well-developed characters and even a sweet hook at the end, while still leaving the reader satisfied in so few pages. Her imagery is clean, crisp and so clear I always knew exactly where I stood in the story. The way she teases or comforts the reader with dashes of back story throughout the piece is truly masterful.

    I enjoyed the characters, cared about them, laughed with them, worried about them. And in the end, I was hoping for them, which kept me turning pages, thoroughly entertained by each of the rich story threads. There's even the hint of a sweet romance within Bringing Lula Home!

    Not the "feel good" book I was hoping for on a lazy summer afternoon. I oftentimes read to escape and think of simpler times.
    There were unexpected sexual innuendos and coarse language, definitely not my CUP OF TEA. If you are looking for a fun read, skip this book, and get a travelogue instead.
