BABETTE HUGHES' "THE HAT" (A REVIEW)
I cannot say enough about this book and how wonderfully written it is. Babette Hughes is definitely one of my favorite writers as of this moment. From the opening page this book gripped me and I could not put it down. The story of a bootlegger's wife during the 'Great Depression' is riveting and emotionally charged to such a degree that you feel as though you're living it with her. You want so badly to be part of this story, to help her find a way out that it leaves you breathless with anticipation of what will happen to the heroine Kate (Little Red).
I would definitely recommend this as one of the must-reads to add to your list. You will not be disappointed. I long for the next endeavor Babette Hughes pursues and will be sure to pick up her books from here on out. Do not pass this one up!

This book was boring. So boring that I barely got past page 40 before I put it down. This is not a book I normally would buy; I won it in a contest. The characters were not interesting to me at all. The female protaganist was a whiny brat who was ashamed of her alcoholic mother and her Jewish/Catholic roots. That's about all I got from this book. And that she married a Jewish mobster.
