This came at a perfect moment my way. Reading Lila Mae and Max's story was such a beautiful read for me! MJ books often are funny, and humorous. This was a little bit more serious. I loved her picture of Louisiana. It made me want to go there and experience it for myself. Lila Mae's passion for teaching, for her students, for her family, for the people in her circle, made her a beautiful, heartfelt character. Max's jump into work ethic, whole-hearted enthusiasm, joy at being with Lila Mae while trying to figure out their 'journey' from acquaintances with a past, to friends and more than friends with a future was a beautiful read. Both of their passions for life, their obvious chemistry and attraction to each other, their family loyalty, their love for life, food, kindnesses, their devotion to service (at church), made for a beautiful, heartfelt, wonderful journey. There was such a magic, almost a bit of pixie-dust in this novel. I rarely give 5's. Obviously this is a feel-good story, but it was so well-crafted. I loved the optimism they had to change the world, one person at a time and bring hope to people around them, along with staying true to who they were. This was a magical, lovely read, with all the promise of something wonderful to come!
Plus the Etta James song and Elvis.... Perfectly magical heartfelt, heart-tugging moments. Their compromise at the end, although they both came to it different ways was really lovely. MJ is a master writer. She brings sympathy, charm, characters we care about, hope, faith, magic and wit to her writing. I will always be a fan and gobble up anything she has written. This deserves to be read by a wide audience. HEA at it's finest and with dose of wonderful southern charm! I can't wait to read her next novel!!
She takes her "somehow" writing philosophy to heart as explained in this book as advice from another teacher. I was recognizing that quality in her just a few pages before she put into words what she had helped me experience first-hand. I knew I had been taught by a master teacher. (I'm going to rephrase poorly, but basically, if the hero of the story "somehow" gets out of an impossible situation, then the author doesn't know what they are doing well enough write them into an impossible situation and then not be able to describe it.) What an amazing quality to not just "click" with the characters, but "click" with the author! Melanie Jacobson is that kind of woman.
