Shem Creek by Dorothea Benton Frank( Sound Recording )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Single parent Linda Breland ditches a dead-end job and life in New Jersey to move back home to Mt. Pleasant and start a new life for herself and her teenage daughters. ("Look, if New Jersey had wanted us, it would have given us a reason to stay. It didn't.") The work she finds -- manager of a restaurant on Shem Creek -- introduces her to its owner, Brad Jackson, a man living out his own second chance. Frank takes her time unfurling the plot and developing her characters -- the adjustment of the Breland family to the South, the friendships among the people at the restaurant, and, of course, the growing romance between Brad and Linda -- and the result is a delightful and poignant read, filled with humor and the celebration of life
