Starting over

The Florabama Ladies Auxiliary and Sewing Circle by Lois Battle is a cute uplifting read. Bonnie Duke Cullman has been left broke, financially and emotionally by her irresponsible husband. It could be worse. Bonnie’s wealthy father is paying for the education of her two indulged children, so she just has to restart her own life. It’s not easy. She is over 40, and has been off the job market for 20 years. Bonnie’s pride takes a hit when her father pulls strings to get her job heading up the Domestic Homemakers program at FlorabamaCommunity College.

Bonnie shows up as the local lingerie factory closes down and tosses a bunch of working women out of work. Together she and a group of warm and wild working women rebuild their lives.
