The book's narrative takes place between two Southern ladies, who are old friends revisiting unresolved issues of their past. It makes you want to curl up in a club chair, with a cup of tea, to travel back to a time when the world moved a little slower. Having lived in the South once, I enjoyed Ms. McBride's colorful dialogue peppered with "Yes, ma'am" and "No, sir."
This is a quick read that is hard to put down at times. My favorite part of the story was the compelling friendship between Magg-Pie and Lizabeth. It was credible and heart-warming to see how much love and heartache they shared...a lifetime worth. It demonstrates how human beings can endure great hardships, but as long as one person is there to help you cope -- you can endure and persevere.
"Than Melvin Bray" is wonderful book that reminded me that forgiveness starts with forgiving ourselves.
