I have bought this book twice! I enjoyed it so much I reread and reread it and all the others in the series, then I bought one for my sister.

I was so excited to find another series after having finishing all of "The Miss Julia" and The Mitford series by Jan Karon. This series seem to want to explore every politically correct issue on the planet---I truly would love to get away from the moral mudslide in our nation when I try to escape into a good book---this is not the case with this series. I ordered the first three books read the first and enjoyed it somewhat---struggled through the second book and will not read the thrid book--I am so sorry to have to write this report but it just got very depressing----

THe Ladies of Covington Send Their Love
This is a soft and affectionate look at older folks and North Carolina which I enjoyed very much. It's uplifting and positive; I've recommended it to a couple of friends who have been complaining 'way too much in the hope that it would help them get off that track. We're all in our '70's and it's nice to have something to read which reflects the "up" side of aging. (And, yes, there certainly are quite a few). If this is "Crone-Lit", let's have more of it!
