Product description


"Wholly original, funny and poignant" #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs

"Stunning, powerful and raw. Pea is on a journey to heal herself, and find herself--and you will want to go with her to find her dear, dead sister--I do." New York Times bestselling author Stella Cameron

"A wonderfully engaging story of one woman's search for self. Jean Brashear tugs on your heartstrings and won't let go." New York Times bestselling author Julia London

"A fabulous read. Riveting. Original. Those characters grabbed my imagination and didn't let go." New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell

"Jean Brashear's distinctive storytelling voice instantly draws in the reader. She writes with warmth and emotional truth." #1 NY Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

"The Goddess of Fried Okra is a poignant journey of one woman's search for a place to belong. The characters are as delightful and engaging as can be found between the pages of a book, and the book itself is a road map to happiness--something for which everybody yearns." New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala

"With characters full of heart...and vinegar, Jean Brashear takes us on a road trip through the back doors of modern life. And we get to read every hilarious marker on the way." USAToday bestselling author Pamela Morsi

"This is an inspiring and touching story of a grieving woman's journey to finding herself and the true meaning of family. Brashear writes with humor and compassion. There are subtle lessons to be learned while you enjoy a well-written and interesting story." Romantic Times Book Reviews

"The Goddess of Fried Okra is not a romance, although it has a sexy con man in the process of reform (and a great love scene); it's women's fiction with the requisite journey of self-discovery. But this is not your conventional WF story of the divorced wife, the patient facing death, or the rebel coming home. I'm not much for high concept descriptions, but I'd say TGOFO is Eudora Welty meets Sue Monk Kidd and they lunch with Fannie Flagg.

When I first heard the title The Goddess of Fried Okra, I was intrigued. When I realized Jean Brashear, whose emotionally rich, character-driven books I have loved for years, was the author, I added it to my 2010 must-read list. Reading it was even better than my expectations. When I learned a few pages into the story that A Wrinkle in Time and the poetry of Mary Oliver were among the books Pea carried in the trunk of her car, I knew I had encountered a kindred spirit. I loved this book with its endearing eccentrics, its poignancy, its humor, and is distinctly Southern accent. I even loved the chapter titles and signpost epigrams. It's redundant at this point to say The Goddess of Fried Okra got an A from me (but I said it anyway). It's on bookshelves now. Rush out today and buy a copy, and reserve a goodly block of time for reading. This is one you'll want to savor." Just Janga reviews

About the Author

A letter to Rod Stewart resulting in a Cinderella 16th birthday for her daughter might have been the first step on Texas romance author Jean Brashear's path to being a New York Times and USAToday bestselling author of more than 50 novels in romance and women's fiction. Jean's stories are hailed as "feel-good romance at its finest" and her quirky small towns are called "a special place for hearts that need healing." All are evidence of Jean's heartfelt belief that love is the most powerful force in the universe, and her stories reflect that bone-deep commitment to spreading her faith in the goodness that exists inside us all. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
