    Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns

    The one thing you can depend on in Cold Sassy, Georgia, is that word gets around – fast.

    On July 5, 1906, scandal breaks in the small town of Cold Sassy, Georgia, when the proprietor of the general store, E. Rucker Blakeslee, elopes with Miss Love Simpson. He is barely three weeks a widower, and she is only half his age and a Yankee to boot. As their marriage inspires a whirlwind of local gossip, 14-year old Will Tweedy suddenly finds himself eyewitness to a family scandal, and that’s where his adventures begin.

    Cold Sassy Tree is the undeniably entertaining and extraordinarily moving account of small-town Southern life in a bygone era. Brimming with characters who are wise and loony, unimpeachably pious and deliciously irreverent, Olive Ann Burns’ classic bestseller is a timeless, funny, and resplendent reassure.
