Audiobook - Miss Julia Stands Her Ground by Ann B. Ross

>> Monday, December 3, 2007

Genre: Light humorous fiction
Published 2006
Book on CD read by Cynthia Darlow

This was number 7 in this series starring Julia Springer. She’s a ‘woman of a certain age’ from Abbotsville, North Carolina. I enjoy this series for driving around town audiobook listening. It’s a comedy of manners type of book. The returning cast is an enjoyable set of foils for Miss Julia.

In this one, Hazel Marie’s evangelist uncle Vernon Puckett returns. He’s threatening to publicly question whether Little Lloyd is really the son of Julia’s late husband. Although no one can quite figure out what Vernon’s up to, they’re all sure it’s no good. Miss Julia just wants to keep it all out of the public view and protect her ‘family’, but as usual, misunderstandings and confusion reign.

Perfect for light car listening.

No comment about the book. I'm just checking to see how you weathered the big storm. We haven't been able to get a hold of my folks. Phone lines and power are all out along the coast. They're just south of Lincoln City which got terrible winds. I hope none of the trees in their development fell on their house!!

Aw thanks Les ;-) We're fine - I'm just glad the wind and rain finally stopped howling so we could sleep. No damage at our house and no trouble for us getting around town. Luckily we don't need to go to the coast or to Seattle in the next few days. I-5 is flooded north of Portland and most roads to the coast are still closed from trees down. Hope your folks are OK - lots of power outages and trees down over that way.

I loved this one! I wanted to reach through the tape deck and smack the uncle's cranium! That makes for a good to me book.

Glad y'all are ok. I talked to my mom last night and they're good, too. A lot of trees down in the cove, but fortunately none on their house! Phew!

Vickie: Oh yeah - me too - Vernon is just so slimy!

Les: so glad you heard from your folks and that they're OK - it's fine in the Portland area, but just a mess in so many areas near here.
