    If you had 'em, you were free to think about other things. To learn more about cookies, please see our cookie policy. Tough, outspoken Hilly has a loving and loyal heart. I don't have any other word. In an unlikely alliance, Bonnie, Hilly, and the rest of the ex-bra seamstresses join forces in the "Displaced Homemakers Program" at a podunk community college.

    The project is a huge success, but teeters on the brink of disaster when one of their own runs off with the first big check. The dog doesn't play much of a role and he gets left home alone way too much. I loved some characters, despised others, and didn't much care one way or the other for some. At the end of the day, it's just a nice book. And even though her job turns out to be nothing at all like she imagined, and her office has all the charm of a utility closet, Bonnie teaches herself the computer, learns the ins and outs of public funding, and becomes acquainted with all sorts of people she would never have met in her former life, and who end up enriching her present one. Accustomed to a country club existence, she has never done a real day's work in her life.

    She's on her way to Florabama, Alabama from Atlanta, where she will be starting a job at a small local college, helping the newly unemployed start college courses. OK, so you can guess what happens, right? How do Battle's characters and their stories reflect current issues and trends in the South, and in America in general? Now then, about that dog.

*** 3 stars - just a nice story about some ladies. ALR Green - dog as a minor character. Not my usual fare. In fact, if this were a movie, it'd be a chick flick.

From the author of Storyville and Bed and Breakfast-a funny, heartfelt, and poignant novel about the surprising power of a group of small-town women.

"We've been screwed blued and tattooed," quips Hilly Pruitt at hearing the news of the closing of Cherished Lady, the local lingerie factory. Hilly, along with many other women in Florabama, have been relying on the factory for their livelihood Author: Lois Battle.
