QUEEN BEE OF MIMOSA BRANCH
Hilariously on the mark, Ms. Smith's novel of life in a small southern town is the perfect combination of wit and touching sentiment. Small-town corruption, racism, and a sense of community are superbly meshed in this one-of-a-kind feel-good read.

Though expecting to encounter difficulties with her eccentric family, Lin finds that her life's lessons only serve to bring them closer. When she finds a job at the local drugstore and attracts the attention of her neighbor and pharmacist, Grant, some soul searching is definitely in order.
