Description
Scandal breaks in the small town of Cold Sassy, Georgia, in the summer of 1906 when the proprietor of the general store, E. Rucker Blakeslee, elopes with his milliner Miss Love Simpson. He is barely three weeks a widower, and she is half his age—and a Yankee to boot. As Grandpa Blakeslee's marriage blows up a whirlwind of local gossip, 14-year-old Will Tweedy suddenly finds himself eyewitness to a family crisis, and that's where his adventures begin. Brimming with characters who are wise and loony, unimpeachably pious and deliciously irreverent, Olive Ann Burns's classic 1984 novel is "a hilarious and passionate book ... one of the best portraits of small-town Southern life ever written."—Pat Conroy

"Rich with emotion, humor and tenderness ... a novel about an old man growing young, a young man growing up, and the modern age coming to a small southern town."—Washington Post Book World
