Who are pregnant with possibility,
Unrelentingly pursuing their passion,
And producing nothing short of phenomenal.

They make life so sweet,
Like a ripe, juicy peach on a hot summer day.

Funny, but I've met this lady before on an isolated country road in the deep "SOUTH" sitting in her rocking chair waving as sporadic trucks passed by...
It was a simple stop to say "Hey" and "How u doing" but it turned me turning into a leprechaun as she filled my heart with GOLD. The various Mama Cherry's are the ladies who jointly raised the so-called male (and female) "prototypes" while planting a humble seed as they speak (insert Button's issue). There's nothing like that knowledge and prior experience that can address your biggest emotional crossroad about love and life like Mama Cherry did in very few words to Button. In hindsight, Mama Cherry brought home the point that Dawn was making all along that exploded at the Memorial Day party - that she had something substantial in someone. Both Dawn and Mama Cherry were saying the same but in a nostalgic way, Mama Cherry aimed at Buttons conscious for clarity so the choice was hers.
My next favorite or 'relate-able' character was indeed Henry who sounds like he's had a few Mama Cherry's in his past & possibly present...(which is why I can thoroughly relate to him the most). What's sad is there are several Henry's & Phillips out there who are overshadowed by with Rick's & Quarters who hurt the Dawn's who then think the Benjamin's are way out of their leagues!
A MUST read!!!!!
Wonderful characters with realistic issues. Issues of commitment, integrity, forgiveness and unconditional love. A sound track that made me remember why SUMMER is my favorite season of all!
Every "girl" resounded with me at some point in my life. I could understand the why's and why NOTS!
So, if you love a good book with a great message-this is the book for you. Loved this book!
