'Between, Georgia' is a modern day 'Hatfield's and McCoy's' told with richness, exasperation and quirky humor. Some of the 'Southern-ness' is missing from these Southern women, but considering the drama, and humor of the few days over which this story occurs, it's to be forgiven as their strength and their stubborn are all too clear and clearly Southern. The characters, with all their flaws, are made real by Jackson.
The story is about families: those you have, those you want, those who want you and those you sometimes wish you could deny. Familial blood gives you family ties, but love makes you part of a family. The story is all about making sense of the "between".
I am a fan of Joshilyn Jackson, many published after 'Between, Georgia', and it's clear her writing has grown since her earlier books.
I really enjoyed this book, it has some very passionate character that will not be easily forgotten.
Very enjoyable. The characters are welll defined. Lots of humor and drama.
I loved this book - listened to it on CD as read by the author and was so sad to have it end that I even listened to the credits. Excellent, excellent characters.
when i'm missing the south (where i grew up), i simply pick up a joshilyn jackson novel and i'm transported. she paints a brilliant picture of eccentric charaters and absorbing plot...between, georgia is a real page-turner.
