A character driven Southern fiction novel about twin sisters on the brink of 30 years old, working through their troubled past with the help of their grandmother in the small town of Clay Station, Mississippi.
Della and Darby are twin sisters that couldn't be more different. Della has always longed to fit in with the popular crowd, whittling herself to fit what she believes will make others like her. Darby is introverted and prefers to keep to herself. My favorite was probably Birdie, I liked the chapters from her perspective with her old fashioned Southern sayings and insight into Della and Darby.
It was a quick read, but hard to read at times because of all the secondhand embarrassment that I caught from Della's cringe-worthy moments. I liked that Darby was comfortable in her own skin, but also learned to shine. I liked the faith elements, and the message of friendship, finding oneself and forgiveness.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
