A solid tribute to the resiliency of the human spirit, “The Florabama Ladies’ Auxiliary & Sewing Circle” features a winning diverse group of women, all of them struggling to deal with life’s large and small adversities. Whether weathering the loss of a job, man, home or family, these women suffer, complain, sink or rise and the best of them realize that you can’t always do it alone and that it’s fine to ask and accept help.
From children to old women, Ms. Battle gives each of these people individual voices, each so distinct you practically know who is speaking whenever a sentence emerges. Reading this is like sitting down to a coffe klatch with all the old friends (or enemies) you grew up with, each retaining her own character and style under all the warpaint. It’s a book of triumphs and defeats told as quiet vignettes looped together, much as these very different women are brought together by twists of fate.
Nice, light reading for the summer. Women of different socio-economic backgrounds become friends, helping each other move on in their lives.
