  • Didn't want this book to end! The trio of ladies in this book remind me of the friends we all loved in "Fried Green Tomatoes". The writer does a wonderful job of telling the story of the beautiful bond of friendship between three women who were different, but alike in all that mattered. I laughed and cried while reading and wish it would be made into a movie! You don't want to miss this one!

  • I read “Sweet Tea With Lemon” and laughed, cried, and sometimes both at the same time! A great book that I highly recommend. Finished the book and then went back and read Chapter one a second time; served as both an introduction and conclusion. Picked up “Seeking The Holy Ghost” immediately after and have just finished it. Again, another winner. Shirley has a way of describing people, places, relationships and events that puts you right there. Congratulations Shirley! I’m about to start “Troubling the Ashes.” I’m not getting anything done that I’m supposed to be doing because I’m reading! Can’t wait to pass these along to my daughter. These books remind me of “A Man Called Ove” and Steel Magnolias,” a great compliment to Shirley.
