CALLED SWEET SHRUB
York : Delacorte, 1990.
feels like a classic al la Little Women, with a rural southern flavor.
Lucy enjoyed the freedom of teaching and being away from home. Her independence
was shattered when her sister took over her boyfriend (they had to get
married) and her father's death caused her mom to need her at home. She
turned around the declining hardware business and tastes the feeling of
successful ideas coming to fruit. Love interest, examining her place in
the family, seeing her sister with new eyes and travel to a racist to the
point of violence town all add to the interest this book maintains.
