Have you sat down to begin a book and then realized you have read it before? Yeah, me too. But with this one, I knew I had read it before but wanted to read it again! The older ladies closest to me are big fans of the Miss Julia series by Ann Ross so I took a day and read it again!
Book of the Month – Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind
My favorite thing about this book (the first one of quite a few) is the witty commentary. The comebacks of Miss Julia (and her inner thoughts) made me want to highlight all through my copy of it. I also love the author’s use of dialogue and dialect.
So what is it all about?
Miss Julia is a born and bred southern Presbyterian lady. Her husband of over 40 years, Wesley Lloyd has recently passed and left her with a fortune. As the lead shares, it was very clear Wesley did not mean for her to have complete control of his finances. However, that is not the only surprise in store. A young boy is dumped at Miss Julia’s doorstep and she learns that her husband clearly strayed from his Biblical teachings. While trying to keep the child safe, she must endure small-town gossip and money-hungry preachers. Her house being robbed, a good looking police officer tenant, and a label as a “nymphomaniac” will keep you flipping every page!
