Product Description

Product Description

Saturday Night Cocoa Fudge is the coming-of-age story in an era of bobby socks, poodle skirts and the freckled-faced girl that wore them. It's also about the Deep South and sweetly flawed women who taught her what she was meant to be and what she was not meant to be.

Their corner of the world was filled with folklore, superstition, and mystical ideas. Her grandmother believed and practiced most of these, passing them onto the next generation. The little girl's life was populated with strange relatives, quirky neighbors and mysterious bible verses that could stop the flow of blood. Being a member of this bizarre family made life worth living. These people were so fiercely loyal in their love for her, for each other, she felt they deserved to have their story told.

"Gloria has written some southern style, real to life episodes that are sure to
entertain you in her Saturday Night Cocoa Fudge. Be careful how much
you laugh - they could have happened to you."
- Dusty Richards, Spur Award Winning Author

"With wit and wisdom, Gloria Teague takes us back to the innocent days of
childhood in this delightful little book peopled with glorious eccentrics."
- Charles W. Sasser, author of God in the Foxhole and Devoted to Fishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You For the Memories May 3 2011
By erbunch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You took me back to my early years, visiting my Granny in Tazewell, Tn and
growing up in a small neighborhood in Knoxville, Tn. No matter where one is from this story will resonate with you. Growing up each of us had that favorite grandmother, aunt, uncle,and best friend we loved to fight with. We each had our fears of bugs, snakes, and bumps in the dark. We each had skinned knee's, bumps on the head, and trips to the ER to check if it was broken or not. Gloria Teague brings back good memories of growing up before internet, hand-held games, and cell phones. When a kid could be kid. She even gives you memories you might claim as one of your own, even if it wasn't. Thank you Miss Gloria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and wonderful...just like "Cocoa Fudge" should be Nov. 15 2008
By Charlene Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Gloria,

I was transported back to the small town of LaFollette where we both grew up and there are so many parallels between our families. I find that the women in our families may have not had much to say...they just let their men think they were the "boss" when in actuality they were the keepers, the disciplinarians, etc. I think most of our mothers/aunts were very strong women with infinite wisdom...whether it be "book-learned" or "old-wives tales".

I hope we can expect a sequel to this book. The book ended too soon for me and I'd like to know what happened in the later years to all those "wonderful beings" you wrote about.

I recognize most of these colorful people just by your descriptions of them. I truly did love the book.

Gloria Teague gives us a look into the past. Warm, descriptive, and fun. After reading it, I thought about cuddling up by a warm fire and thinking back on my childhood.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for Free March 4 2012
By MWoosley - Published on Amazon.com

An OK read for free. This is not a story, it's more of a diary of a child growing up in the 50's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun read, sweet and reminiscent... Jan. 7 2013
By Brittany Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A sweet book about the relationships between a family of women from the fifties, as seen through the eyes of a little girl. Before purchasing, please be aware of some moderate swearing in the book and references to racial hatred, although the author is never condoning it. This is how she grew up and one can feel the love this family has for one another.
