Read full description of the books Small Town Girl:Not sure why this book did not do it for me. I really enjoyed the last two I read by her. I think it all came together way to easily in the end, nicely packaged with a big red bow. (view spoiler)[Honestly the way Faith was treated was horrible. (hide spoiler)]
Loved all the references to music. I do love my Country music, along with other genres but you cannot beat a bit of Willie sometime!
Tess returns home to care for her mother who is having a hip replacement operation. She left home 18 years ago and seldom returns.
I left home 25 years ago. I do return fairly regularly but seriously I really feel as if I regress to being a teenager again when I visit my mother. Like Tess's mom, my mother HAS to have her dinner at one in the afternoon and tea at 6, on the button. It drives me daft.
I remember a friend of mine went to visit her mother in Liverpool for three nights. They were out at the supermarket and my friend picked up a bottle of wine and her mother said, "Have they no smaller bottles? Surely you won't finish that in 3 nights?" This has absolutely nothing to do with the book but reading about Tess and her mother reminded me of this story.
There was something to be said for living away from family.
"Mac is unprepared for what awaits her. After almost two decades of public adoration, she is suddenly a nonperson - insulted by her jealous older sister, enraged by her intractable mother, ignored by Kenny Kronek, the next-door neighbor she mercilessly taunted all through high school. A handsome divorce who dotes upon his teenage daughter, Casey, Kenny is widely respected in the community. Now he refuses to give Mac even the time of day."
Maybe if I read it 30 years ago I might have a different take on it.
Read information about the authorLaVyrle Spencer is an American best-selling author of contemporary and historical romance novels. She has successfully published a number of books, with several of them made into movies. Twelve of her books have been New York Times bestsellers, and Spencer was inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame in 1988.
Spencer is known for creating realistic characters and stories that focus on families rather than only the relationship between a man and woman. These "ordinary" men and women are warm and vulnerable and are always portrayed sympathetically. Her heroines tend to be a mix of fire and warmth, strength, savvy and soft–heartedness who must overcome some sort of adversity, such as pregnancy, divorce, a lengthy separation, the loss of a loved one, and then undergo a catharsis. The stories center on themes of abiding love, family ties and strength in difficult times.
In the 1980s and 1990s Spencer wrote 12 New York Times Bestsellers. Her books have been sold to book clubs worldwide, and have been published around the world. Condensed versions of many of her novels have appeared in Reader's Digest and Good Housekeeping.
She retired from writing in 1997.
