The Same Sweet Girls
Publisher Hyperion, January 2005
None of the Same Sweet Girls are really girls anymore and none of them have actually ever been sweet. But this spirited group of Southern women, who have been holding biannual reunions ever since they were together in college, are nothing short of compelling.
There’s Julia Stovall, the First Lady of Alabama, who
despite her public veneer, is a down-to-earth gal who
only wants to know who her husband is sneaking out with
late at night. There’s Lanier Sanders, whose husband won
custody of their children after he found out about her
fling with a colleague. Then there’s Astor Deveaux, a
former Broadway showgirl who simply can’t keep her
flirtations in check. And Corrine Cooper, whose
incredible story comes to light as the novel unfolds.
