Description
Miss Julia Springer, a proper Southern woman of a certain age, has had enough -- and she's going to tell you about it. Quietly coping with her husband's recent death and the burden of dealing with his sizable estate, she is visited by one Hazel Marie Puckett along with Wesley Lloyd Springer's bastard son. Hazel informs her that, since the man left her penniless, she's leaving little Lloyd in Miss Julia's care. Suddenly, this pillar of her small Southern community finds herself at the center of an unseemly scandal -- and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.

display_description

Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and unceremoniously announces that the child is the bastard son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime church member and pillar of her small Southern community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal-and the guardian of a wan nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down.

With razor-sharp wit and perfect "Steel Magnolia" poise, Miss Julia speaks her mind indeed-about a robbery, a kidnapping, and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death. Fast-paced and charming, with a sure sense of comic drama, a cast of crazy characters, and a strong Southern cadence, Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind will delight readers from first page to last.
