I continue to read a few pages of this book, get caught up in another book which I finish, then return to read a bit more of CeeCee Honeycutt. A prepubescent girl who relocates from Ohio to live with her aunt in Savannah, Georgia, learns about life and Southern ways via the assorted the women whose divergent characteristics reveal these lessons in engaging scenarios. The harshest lessons come from her parents who are unable to rear their child. CeeCee Honeycutt saves herself.
