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.

    I first read this delightful novel several years ago and have just re-read it. I actually read it in two days this time and thoroughly enjoyed every word. Ann B Ross is a writer who connects with the human spirit of her readers. Even though this is fiction, having lived in NC for twenty-five years every word could be true and factual. I am so thankful I'm going to be able to read (or re-read some) of this series of Miss Julia books. Thank you Ann B Ross for sharing your gift with all of us. Rebecca Craine
