Introduction

Nonny Frett understands the meaning of the phrase "in
between a rock and a hard place" better than any woman
alive. She's got two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the
other four baby steps from flat crazy." She's got two
men: a husband who's easing out the back door; and a
best friend, who's laying siege to her heart in her front
yard. And she has two families: the Fretts, who stole her
and raised her right; and the Crabtrees, who won't forget
how they were done wrong. Now, in Between,
Georgia, a feud that began the night Nonny was born
is escalating and threatening to expose family secrets.
Ironically, it might be just what the town needs...if only
Nonny weren't stuck in between.

It was not my favorite of the books on the club list. I am still not sure what exactly the story was about. The whole story was so strange and those character names...come on.
Anyway I have

  "An ok book"by ezzie36330 (see profile) 03/04/09

I thought that Joshilyn Jackson could have done more with the characters. The back of the book does not describe what the book is actually about.

 
  "An easy read that keeps you interested"by cjballard (see profile) 05/07/08

I enjoyed this book for what it was...an easy read with interesting charachters. It won't win awards but it definitely keeps you interested and invested in the story.

Overall, I liked it
