Overview

Come back to Florabama, Alabama, in this heartwarming New York Times bestseller for “a magical and surprising tour of [the] Deep South” (Pat Conroy)

“We’ve been screwed blue and tattooed,” quips Hilly Pruitt, upon hearing the news of Cherished Lady Lingerie’s closing. Now unemployed, Hilly and the rest of the ex-bra seamstresses land in the Displaced Homemakers Program at Florabama’s podunk community college. There they unexpectedly join forces with Bonnie Duke Cullman, an Atlanta society wife who’s been downsized out of her marriage, and together they embark on a midlife survival course that will transform them all. Beautifully repackaged, Lois Battle’s funny, heartfelt, and poignant novel will utterly enchant readers with its rich tapestry of unforgettable female friendships.

Praise

“An intelligent, poignant, funny, wistful novel of expectations, love and rebirth.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“This is just the kind of book you’d like to take onto the porch of a clapboard house, to read curled up in a wicker chair with a glass of iced tea at your side.” —Houston Chronicle
