"Every scene, every character in this wonderfully colorful depiction of Dixie evokes both the vulnerable and gritty parts of a people and region. Beth Duke's DELANEY'S PEOPLE weaves together strands of the past and present as seamless as pearls, treating her readers to a collection chock full of loving detail, big-hearted humor and tender insight."
-Kimberly Brock, author of The River Witch
"This is a moving, deeply felt collection of interconnected stories that contains many intergenerational voices from Delaney's family, ranging from the very young to the very old...The stories are both historical and contemporary and the themes and tropes, from love to loss to war to adultery to cosmetic treatments, all proved timeless. The various threads of jewels, both tangible and intangible, are layered, nuanced, and emotionally resonant. Fine work."
-Writer's Digest Review
From the Author
Delaney's People is my love letter to Alabama. It was inspired by personal experiences growing up here and my return four years ago. There are many things you've read about my Sweet Home, but I'm willing to bet you will discover some surprises in these pages.

Another important truth Ms. Duke brings forward through her characters, how interwoven all of our lives are, whether we are consciously aware of this or not ~ how one seemingly random, singular act of one person can redirect the life course of another, and another, eventually radiating out into the world at large. Another important thing for this reader to remember!
My only complaint is the book ended too soon, I want to spend more time with these characters. As I write this review I am hoping Ms.Duke is busy writing because I can't wait to dive into her next book.
