Susan Lindsley's Yesterplace transports readers into a rural community that most of us never knew and those who did have forgotten. From bootleggers to society leaders, she creates real people. Her writing echoes with the sounds of possum hunts and trace chains, the smells of hayfields, magnolias and manure, and the beauty and sadness of country life.
Cecil "Cec" Murphey, author or co-author of more than 100 books, including the New York Times' best seller, 90 Minutes in Heaven.

You must have put super glue on the covers because I couldn't take my hands off it.

You sure did capture Mama.
