This book is wonderful, from the first lines, to the heartbreaking ending, I couldn't put it down. It is a sweetly sad love story set in the late 50's. I won't ruin it by saying what happens, I will just say this, read it, put it down for a while, and read it again, it is well worth it.

I read this book as a teenager and loved it (I'm 41 now). My 30-something co-worker had also read it and we both agree that it was worth reading again. My teenage daughter read it and gave a copy to her friend. It's impact crossd the generation gap.

Format: Paperback
i first read this book when i was a tender age of 13. i had never been impressed with a book enough to even be able to name the title of one that i had read, this was the first of few to impact me on a deep level. Now at the age of 24, not only do i remember the title,( and pick it up to reread often), but i have it stored away in a hope chest for a future daughter,( or myself) to read. Since the moment i first read this till the present day, a more tragically beautiful story has never been told. i still fold corners of my favorite pages for later rereading, and i still sob and grin my way like a young school girl through this breathtakingly honest story everytime...

OK, I'm a sucker for a 70s films about the American South of the 50s and 60s. Doesn't hurt the film has Glynnis O'Oconnor in an early starring role and is based on the great Bobbie Gentry ballad. The details and resolution may surprise some viewers but I found it a satisfying film.

Why I am I talking about the film when reviewing a book? Well, the book is really the novelization of the screenplay -- no twists, just some additional color and details that add to the enjoyment of both. Watch the film, read the book, you'll get to the same point.

Vendor shipped fast and book was as described. I recommend the book, the film, and this vendor.

It really explained what was happening in the Bobbie Gentry song and turned out to be a pretty good book. In the last 15 years, I've read it twice.
