Format: Paperback
Authors: Clyde Edgerton

Published: 1997-06-23 Publishers Weekly,This charming vignette follows the early days of the marriage of Raney, an inno cent, Southern Baptist, and Charles, who is considerably more liberal and so phisticated than Raney. The two must make many accommodations to one an other and regularly consult a marriage counselor. PW found that the author's ``ear for idiom is exact, the two central characters perceptibly developed and the other members of the small cast are giv en dimension and personality.''

Southern baptist girl from the sticks marries northeastern Episcopalian and the sparks fly. Edgerton deftly portrays their love and their differences, so you know why they fight, but you also know why they stay together.

Jim and I took turns reading this book out loud to each other years and years ago. It is a sweet, funny book. Edgerton knows his Southerners. I mentioned it to two of my cousins during our recent cousin reunion. When I got home, I remembered that Edgerton had lost his job at a Baptist college because of this book; so I decided to re-read it to decide if I wanted to send a copy to my Baptist cousin. And I do. It is somewhat dated, but still a warm account of two very different people learning be married to each other.

Another good book from Edgerton, poor-girl-makes-good in a nice way is how I remember it.
