The Sweet Taste of Muscadines by Pamela Terry

Why would Geneva be out in the muscadine grove with a spoon in her hand when they found her.  What even possessed her to go there in the night?

Geneva’s three grown children were puzzled about why, but did one of them have an idea?

Lila and Henry hadn’t been back to their Southern hometown in Wesleyan, Georgia, for ten years. 

Abigail  had never left Wesleyan and was the one who found their mother the morning she stopped to pick her up for their breakfast outing.

Abigail was the one who was most out of sorts especially since her mother didn’t want a formal funeral.  Abigail couldn’t understand why because that was just what you did.

We follow the children as they unravel the lives of their parents and try to make sense of it all.

The writing in THE SWEET TASTE OF MUSCADINES is absolutely marvelous, beautifully detailed, and pulls you in just like the taste of sweet tea and Southern charm.

If you grew up in the South, you will love this entertaining book that has life-changing, heartbreaking secrets revealed after many years. It is truly an enjoyable, thoughtful read.

If you have ever been to Scotland, this book will also take you back to its magic and beauty.

A do-not-miss, heartwarming read.  5/5
