Loved Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women’s Literary Society by Amy Hill Hearth (Having Our Say co-author).
A delightful “woman’s” book set in the South during the 1960s (of course, it’s gotta be either the South or New York City, right?), Miss Dreamsville captured my attention from page one with its funny and poignant story about a diverse group of women who form a reading group and quickly bond despite their differences.
The book promo sums it up pretty well: “Miss Dreamsville and the Collier County Women’s Literary Society will touch the heart of anyone and everyone who has ever felt like an outsider longing to fit in.”
Since I’m an outsider trapped in a small redneck town where I’m tried in vain for 20 years to connect with my own kind, I felt encouraged by this book, albeit temporarily. And of course it’s fiction so it’ll never happen for me. Sob, whine, sob. Anyway, Miss Dreamsville is a 5-star read.
