A wise and funny novel about the kind of love that extends beyond boundaries-within this world and into the next. Raised in the Tennessee hills in the 1950s by a widower father, Jude grows into a young woman who finds her soul mate in her new neighbor Molly. Three wise and witty novels of the sixties, sexuality, and the South by a New York Times–bestselling "strong, salty, original talent" (Doris Lessing).

They call themselves The Five - Sally and Emily Prince and Jed, Raymond, and Donny Tatro. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 19 years ago. Being a Southerner myself and born about the same time as the characters, I could really relate to this very interesting, sometimes quirky, alternately funny and grim story. This book is full of irony, mischief, and a whole lot of truth. I was involved in so many of the "movements" of the 60's. Alther's book often made me squirm. Were we really that self-righteous, hypocritical and plain dumb?

In this sweeping novel, Alther brings to life characters both tragic and comic as they live through the changing . This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lisa Alther, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

In this sweeping novel, Alther brings to life characters both tragic and comic as they live through the changing American socio-economic landscape of the 1950s and ’60s.

or a political novel with a lot of heart and real-seeming characters that stick in your mind after you read about them.Tackles the big questions of American life from sometimes in the fifties through to the nineties without clubbing us over the head with any of it, and some of the questions clearly don't have easy answers. Less funny than a lot of Ms. Alther's earlier work, although misunderstandings between people are often good for a chuckle. I bought it as a deal of the day, but probably would have paid full price for it.

Interesting! It tells of a time of change in America, and you live those days through the pages of this book.

Interesting picture of life in the South; accurate? I don't know. I grew up farther north and moved south to retire.
Tejora
The character development was good. That's the positive comment. The story, however, moved very slowly and did not keep my interest.
Danial
Very painful reading experience, characters unbelievable and shallow, story read like a very cheesy, comical soap opera. So much extraneous detail added to the chore of trying to finish book. Worst book ever read in my 50+ years of reading. Do not waste your time or money. This is my first negative book review because I have never felt so strongly about needing to warn other readers.

Didn't care for this book at all. Sorry I purchased it. Very hard to stay with the story. Will not be buying anything else from this author.

I first read this book in that late '70's or early 80's, so my review is based on memory streatched back 20 to 30 years ago. The fact that I remember any of it is tribute to it's power.

It's the story of a family in the South: Father is a military maniac, mother is a traditional Southern housewife, daughters Emily and Sally are trying to find their own place. Emily transforms from Southern Girl to Preppy College Girl, to Nothern Housewife, with stumbles and successes along the way, as she searches for who she is and where she fits in. Sally progesses from Southern Debutante to Cheerleader to Happy Homemaker....or is she so happy? Entwined within the lives of the White Southerners are the Black Southerners, and how they live alongside these privileged Whites, in the 1960's Southern small town.

It was written as a contemporary novel 30 years ago, and it is still relevant today, not only as a historical novel....it is still contemporary, with truths about people that will never be dated.

Read it and enjoy it.
First of all, let me tell you, I read books for escape. But sometimes, I might learn a thing or two. And it is with a humble acknowledgement that I gave this book three stars.

Look, I lived through the 1960s and feel that nowadays we have reverted back to the 1860s so revisiting all the bigotry and misogyny of the country through this book during a time when cops shoot kids because of their menacing faces in real life, and reading this nonsense as my escape--well, let's just say the truth. I nearly threw this book away for most of the first 40%. Then at 43-46% I was ready to be finished as the pages were repeated and out of order. But somehow I was drawn in like vampire to a train wreck??? So much was wrong I hoped there was a single drop I could glean from it.

Okay, this should be required reading for everyone in high school. It could be used to teach English. Look, I understand making the characters sound a certain way but to continue beyond the dialogue was horrid! Then you could use the book to teach patience and tolerance about people who may seem like they are different. Then use it in a Sex Ed. class to show what not to do. Then for a feminism classes to show men and women what not to expect.

I am so glad I didn't buy this book. I picked it up through Kindle Unlimited. I know a lot of people loved this book. It was through a book group who recommended this to me that I read it. I feel no closer to a truth or an escape having gone through this. And that makes me feel horrid. Sorry.
