Marilyn and Kathryn are sisters and neighbors whose favorite pastime is sipping martinis from mason jars on Marilyn's front porch in the gulf front town of Orange Beach, Alabama, as they reminisce about family and the times they visited Cotton Tree. Miss Mincy is the girls' source of stability and has given the entire family advice and inspiration throughout the years. While some could misconstrue Mincy's presence, she is not a maid. She lives at the Chandler-Drake house in Cotton Tree. She is a family member of the Chandler-Drake household. A true southern lady, the only thing one might find "imperfect" about Mincy is that she never knew who her father was-until one day while going through some old boxes Avery Drake Montgomery finds Mincy's birth certificate. This information and discovery of a new family changes Mincy's life forever. Then there's Delta, a distant cousin of the Drake family who comes to visit Cotton Tree from Savannah, Georgia for most family gatherings. Cousin Delta does not shy away from confrontation and will speak her mind even to the pastor of the First Baptist Church. She loves her bourbon and cola and livens up the atmosphere of every social event she attends. From sorority sisters shelling peas, to charity bake sales, and finding confederate gold in a hidden ballroom, Mud Marbles invokes the charm of the south and exposes long-buried secrets.

Mud Marbles

This is definitely a heart warming good read ! Mud Marbles brought me back to my own childhood in so many ways. Shelling peas with my cousins on my Grandparents porch, family reunions with at least one wild family member and sleep overs revealing family secrets that you will take to your grave. Tolar Miles has won me over with this wonderful Southern Novel.

Southern Charm

If you love the south and the charm of the south, then this is a must read. Back when people actually sat on the porch and talked...not like today with people sitting and staring at their phones. I'm from the south and have these values.. Thank you Tolar Miles for writing a truely southern read.

Enjoy a little quiet time.

Mud Marbles is such a fun read. It is full of "Southern Charm." I enjoyed it so much that I sought out the author's next book, Delta. Just curl up in a comfy chair and prepare giggle! Would recommend to all my girlfriends.

Bless her heart th...

' Bless her heart ' this author has caught the charms of the old time, sippin' from Mason jars, south and written an amazing book that you Suwannee HAS to be biographical! EVERY family on earth would be blessed to have a 'Mincy' in their midst and i'd bet most of us DO have an Aunt Marble or two in the mix. Two sisters take the time to sit on the front porch of one of the closely-knit family homes and reminisce. It's the stories they share of earlier times and older relatives that just captures your heart and makes you start talkin' suthern. I love Mincy's quote: " You can choose to make yourself like a piece of sea glass tumblin' through life, or you can rely on others to make you into something." ( like a marble) I choose sea glass.....
