There has been an ongoing feud in the town of Between, Georgia which has a population of 90. The feud has been continuing for years between the wealthy Fretts and the Crabtrees who are the complete opposite.
Hazel Crabtree, fifteen years old and pregnant, was about to give birth. She knocked on the door of Stacia Frett's house. It didn't take long for everyone to realize a baby was about to be born. What would make a Crabtree go to the house of a Frett for help? The Frett family helped with the delivery and a baby girl, Nonny, was born.
Stacia Frett is a deaf sculptor. She had a genetic condition which was causing her to lose her sight. In time, she would no longer be able to go on with her career. Stacia felt she had no reason to live any longer - that is until baby Nonny was born. Stacia decided she wanted to keep the baby so the Fretts decided to do so even though the knew this was wrong.
Now thirty years later, Nonny Frett is an interpreter living in Athens, Georgia. Her life is somewhat complicated due to the fact that she has two mothers and a number of other interesting things going on in her life at the same time.
What happens to Nonny and the feud that began so many years ago?
This book has everything to make it a great read - unusual characters, a setting and storyline involving the south and a plot that is somewhat different and full of surprises. Readers will like the characters especially Stacia because you can just feel what she was going through with her condition and losing her will to live. Another thing that makes this book quite interesting is the fact that it is narrated by Nonny even from the moment she was in her mother's womb. Be sure to add this one to your reading list.
