Culture shock in a young marriage
Would you listen to another book narrated by Ruth Ann Phimister?
Phimister did a great job of capturing the humor and the frustration of this couple, the only thing distracting is she sounds like an older southern lady, not a 24 year-old girl.
Any additional comments?
Raney remains an unreconstructed racist and casually uses racist epithets. I don't know how it's possible to still like her, except she's so young and sheltered and barely has an idea what's going on in her own circle, let alone outside it. She's never really examined or questioned her family's worldview. We deal with sexual mores, profanity, pornography, alcoholism, depression, and suicide. The racism isn't dealt with directly; it's part of the slowly changing background.

Simple and Gratifying
Once again Edgerton weaves a story that feels like a trip back home...quaint as a visit with ones old aunties, funny as a late night of telling family folktales again, and ending too soon and a bit abruptly like all good visits down home do.
