Old Girls in Low Cotton


Helen Childress

A bittersweet but funny story about a woman who sets out to start over after her husband is killed, but finds herself sharing a trailer with her mother-in-law instead. The characters are believable and ultimately likable, the sort you wish you could reach into the book and help sort through the mess they're making.

Favorite Thing: 
The funny but sharp observations about how people pick up the pieces when life doesn't go as planned.
