Miss Julia stands her ground
Ann B. Ross
Adult Fiction ROSS

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Ross, reminiscent of Jan Karon and Fannie Flagg, reintroduces the popular Miss Julia, a plucky busybody "of a certain age," in this seventh novel (after Miss Julia's School of Beauty) in her ongoing series. Miss Julia again stands tall in a quaint, narrow-minded Southern city in the western North Carolina mountains, this time facing a paternity dispute over her beloved Little Lloyd, who may be her philandering, deceased former husband's son by another woman, Hazel Marie. To prove Little Lloyd's lineage without actually exhuming a corpse, Miss Julia's new husband Sam Murdoch suggests they retrieve a specimen of her late hubby's DNA, launching a search to find an appropriately personal item?a hairbrush comes to mind, as do the dead man's gallstones. As if that isn't enough to keep her busy, Miss Julia discovers the women of her church have circulated a petition nominating her to run for the board of elders, and the woman claiming Little Lloyd as her own volunteers Miss Julia's home for a wildly inappropriate party. Enjoyable but formulaic, it's light beach reading that should fulfill fans' expectations. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Heavens! Brother Vernon Pluckett blows into town with what he claims is solid proof that Little Lloyd is not the son of Miss Julia's cheatin' (and now dead) husband. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
