Hurricane Sisters

The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank
(published 2014 – now out in paperback! )

I’ve read about 100 pages of this contemporary Southern novel, and it’s quite fun so far! I’m enjoying the descriptions of the South Carolina beaches as well as the very quirky family members.

My husband, Clayton, and I were at the police station getting my mother, Maisie, out of jail for brushing up against the wrong side of the law. Her actual charges were still unclear. She claims it is not against any law in the state of South Carolina to take a llama for a walk on the open road. He was, after all, on a leash.

And a little moment of grandmotherly advice:

“Maisie always says I should remember that I can marry more money in five minutes than I can earn in a lifetime.”

What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!
