Nonny's birth is the catalyst that heightens a long-standing family feud between the Crabtrees, a clan of slovenly, unwashed reprobates, and the Fretts, a semi-prosperous, if offbeat, family whose unique doll museum attracts tourists to the small town of Between, Georgia, population 90. Biologically Nonny is a Crabtree, but she is adopted at birth and raised by the Fretts. Joshilyn Jackson is a storyteller whose clarity and elegant poetry are worthy of the tradition of our great Southern writers. The really big surprise is her reading. Jackson reads with energy, enthusiasm, and the finesse of an accomplished voice actor. Her artful characterizations draw listeners into Nonny's world, filled with quirky, genuine, and original characters. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
