I was so enthralled by this book. Sorry to have it end.

This two book set gives many days of reading enjoyment. The books are both very well written, but have quite different settings (one in the Appalachian mountains and the other on the Georgia seacoast) and story lines. The Secret Sense of Wildflower is a great story with great writing. The novel is set in 1940's Appalachia and is full of humor mixed in with a serious theme. Wildflower (her nickname) is a spunky teen whose beloved father died a year or so ago and she and her mother and three sisters forge their way without their man. A local boy, Johnny Monroe is one of those mountain cretins you don't want to meet and he and Wildflower have a dramatic encounter. I don't want to reveal the storyline, but I recommend this to those who are tired of badly written novels and want a lyrical, suspenseful story that is hard to forget. Southern literary fiction at its best! Temple Secrets is a meaty Southern Gothic novel. It’s well written, teaches me a few things and makes me - at various points - laugh out loud and cry. I tend to be one of those people who laugh silently, but I burst out with a few in this book! The story is narrated by four women: Queenie, Violet, Rose and Old Sally. These women, black and white, have a lot of shared family history and to varying extent, genes. Queenie is hilarious. Violet, her niece, has some psychic abilities inherited from Old Sally, her grandmother and the wise holder of the Gullah traditions. Rose is the estranged daughter of Iris Temple, the matriarch of this entrenched, elite Savannah family. I don’t want to try to summarize the plot (hint: it has to do with secrets!). But this wonderful novel will leave you feeling satisfied.
