Summary
"Olive Ann Burns's enormously popular bestseller has warmed the hearts of readers since its original publication by Houghton Mifflin in 1984. Now Houghton celebrates its return to our house with a gorgeous new paperback edition. Set in the fictional town of Cold Sassy, Georgia, at the beginning of the twentieth century, Burns's novel centers on the charming fourteen-year-old Will Tweedy. When Grandpa E. Rucker Blakeslee decides to marry the young Miss Love Simpson a mere three weeks after his wife -- Will's grandmother -- has died, he inspires a whirlwind of local gossip. Young Will suddenly finds himself eyewitness to a family scandal, which he gracefully humors and endures; meanwhile, he has his own growing to do and mischief to find"--Publisher description

Summary
One thing you could depend on in Cold Sassy, Georgia, was that word got around - fast. On July 5, 1906, things took a scandalous turn. That was the day that E. Rucker Blakeslee, proprietor of the general store and barely three weeks a widower, eloped with Miss Love Simpson - a woman half his age and, worse yet, a Yankee! On that day, fourteen-year-old Will Tweedy's adventures began, and an unimpeachably pious town came to life
