My Summer of Southern Discomfort July 15 2007
By M. deLong - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is a page-turner from start to finish. I quickly became wrapped up in the life of the protagonist and found myself identifying with her in ways I didn't expect. The plotline combines an interesting legal story that touches on several ethical issues with a great character study of several different people, along with a dash of romance. The characters are rich and multi-faceted, so that they really are true human beings with strengths and flaws. I found myself rooting for so many different characters, including ones that I didn't think I would like as people when I started the book. It is a fun read that it also thought-provoking and inspiring to women. I highly recommend this book.

Disapointing Nov. 16 2007
By Transplanted New Yorker - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I wanted to like this book, I really did. But it's awkward and sort of clumsy -- the dialogue and the plots just don't seem real. Some of the writing is engaging, but much of it falls flat and just doesn't have the impact it's supposed to. There's a good idea for a novel here, but it never realizes its potential.

Great read! Aug. 7 2007
By J. Luszcz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I just finished this book and was so sad when the last page appeared - I didn't want it to end! Natalie's summer of transformation from a heart broken Yankee to more relaxed Southerner draws you in with a cast of memorable, well developed supporting characters. It is surprisingly well written for a freshman piece. The author's wit and sarcasm shine through out the novel. Her attention to detail, from how things look, smell and sound, helps you feel like you are there in Macon with Natalie, understanding all she is going through. I look forward to Ms. Gayle's second book.

Great summer read! July 11 2007
By Anonymous - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I just finished reading this terrific new book and had to share my enjoyment. I found myself sept into the life of the main character, Natalie, and at the end of the book, I found myself wanting more! The author deeply develops each of the characters that surround Natalie in her life. The court case is interesting, but does not overshadow the transition that Natalie is facing as she moves from New York City to Georgia to start a new life. I found myself rooting for Natalie's success. This was a great summer read!

I found this book to be cleverly written. It contained a couple of aha moments along with some genuine humor. In my mind's eye I could easily see each and every character along with each setting. Oh how I would love to find a welcome seat in Lala's garden! But for me the story lacked a punch. I kept searching for a plot . . . a reason for the story. All I could find was a rather ordinary tale.
