This delightful story ...

This delightful story was made even more delightful by the performance of Johanna Parker on the audio version I listened to. In the story Mandalay Florentino is a Hollywood production assitant working with a 'American Idol' type show. She travels to Texas to film the hometown segment for the sweet and naive Amber Anderson, all the while hoping word hasn't leaked out and that the media won't be on her tale. As Mandalay (or 'Amanda Lee' as the Texans call her) deals with the ups and downs of her professional and personal life the narrator nails the character of the story and give each character just the right voice, making the story come alive. Mandalay of course finds success, love and happiness but learns quite a few lessons from the small town folk of Texas--and helps them learn some lessons about life and faith as well. Give this one a read or listen if you enjoy fun quirky stories with strong female characters, small town values, and memorable characters.
