Book: The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
Finished: March 2012
Challenges: Southern Literature, Mount TBR, Outdo Yourself & TBR 2012
I first discovered Sarah Addison Allen last year when I read her Garden Secrets. I enjoyed that one as well as this latest offering. Southern Lit fascinates me as it embodies a way of life very foreign to the one I grew up in--being a Pacific Northwest girl like I am.
In Allen's boosk we are graced with all things southern--the charm, the history, the women's societies, the debutantes, the maternal expectations, the slow pace of life, and the warmth of down home hospitality. We are given richly drawn characters-- both men and women. Add all that together and through in a little whimsical magic and you have an extremely engaging read!
