Haywood Smith writes of Linwood Breedlove Scott, forced by her husband (now ex)’s financial profligacy and affairs to return home to her parents’ house after thirty years of being gone. She finds her town of Mimosa Branch, Georgia, to be much changed, but her family crazier (literally) than ever. But with an attitude of ‘Just for today. Just until tomorrow,’ and her supportive friend Trisha, she starts getting to know the community again. I laughed so hard I almost cried, and then there were the painful places where I almost cried. Wonderful book about a woman finding herself again in middle age.
Four out of five stars.
