    Cold Sassy Tree

by Olive Ann Burns is a story told through the eyes of 14 year old Will Tweedy at the turn of last century. To the consternation of his family, Will’s grandpa, a leading citizen of Cold Sassy, Georgia and the widower of beloved Granny Blakeslee for barely 3 weeks, elopes with Miss Love Simpson…. half his age and a Yankee to boot! “(G)it on down here. I got something to say. And I ain’t a-go’n say it but once’t. “ E. Rucker Blakeslee then proceeds to declare that he is marrying Miss Love Simpson.
Will Tweedy gets run over by a train, lives to tell about it and does a lot of growing up in this Southern, rural place where word gets around fast among small-town gossips. His adventures and yarns will have you smiling and laughing. There’s plenty of warmth, a few tears, and a cast of interesting characters: Miss Effie Belle Tate, Lightfoot McLendon, Bluford Jackson, Hosie Roach. Aunt Loma is said to have nursed a pig, Miss Love is removed as piano player down at the Methodist church and Grandpa becomes Cold Sassy’s first motorcar owner. Boy howdy!, The book is a delight to read and the audio version with 11 CDs with its terrific dialogue will have you smiling on your long commutes into work.
