I have had a pretty good week, with my cortisone injection working well in my spine for my back pain and sciatic nerve pain so I thought I would celebrate with a giveaway. I have a hard copy of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. I believe I have heard this will be made into a movie at sometime in the future. I have not read it yet but it did get excellent amazon and publisher weekly reviews. Along with that I have some wonderful smelling body lotion from Donna Karan - Cashmere Mist.
Momma always told CeeCee (short for Cecelia Rose) that “being in the North isn’t living—it’s absolute hell.” Of course, having to live with Momma—Camille Sugarbaker Honeycutt, that is, Vidalia Onion Queen, 1951—doesn’t make it any more heavenly, especially when Momma starts standing in the front yard blowing kisses to passersby. You know this is going to end badly, and so it does, when the erstwhile onion queen is run over by a speeding Happy Cow Ice Cream Truck. Before you can say “sweet magnolia blossoms,” 12-year-old CeeCee is sent off to Savannah to live with her elderly great aunt, Tallulah Caldwell, and her wise African American housekeeper and cook, Oletta. It being 1967, you know there will be one dark episode of racial hatred, but it’s quickly—and conveniently—resolved offstage, leaving all the characters free to continue being relentlessly eccentric, upbeat, sweet as molasses, and living, as CeeCee puts it with a straight face, “in a breezy, flower-scented fairy tale . . . a strange, perfumed world that . . . seemed to be run entirely by women.” Light as air but thoroughly pleasant reading. --Michael Cart --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
