For a fast-paced, hilarious and thoroughly fun summer read, this is the book to pick.
Miss Julia gets the shock of her life when not only the mistress of her late husband but also their illegitimate offspring suddenly appear at her door. Just when Miss Julia was getting on with her life and actually enjoying being free of the overbearing, pompous, and hypocritcal Wesley Lloyd Springer, his bleached blonde mistress and pathetic little son show up and change Miss Julia's life in ways she never expected. As she often reminds the reader, she never asked for any of this. But what she gets is heart-warming, fast-paced, and hysterically funny.
The story may be slightly far-fetched, but the characters are so typically Southern---from the unscrupulous and conniving pastor to the slick televangelist and the down-home lawyer--- that you'll fall in love with this unlikely mix of characters and delight in the ways they touch each other's lives.
I can't wait to read the sequel "Miss Julia Takes Over" cause I'm sure she will. She is forever telling us that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself and I'm sure, like all Southern women, Miss Julia will do it just perfectly. So pour yourself a tall glass of lemonade, settle down on the front veranda, and listen to Miss Julia tell her story.
