Readings and Greetings: Miss Julia to the Rescue by Ann B. Ross
The death of her first husband of 44 years, Wesley Lloyd Springer, leaves Miss Julia with enough money to support her home in style, but it also left her with his a son born out of wedlock to Mr. Springer's romance at the time, Hazel Marie. Rather than a mopey sad bitter woman over her husband's secret lifestyle, we have Miss Julia who takes action to make life good and respectable for Hazel Marie and her illegitimate son, Lloyd. Thanks to Miss Julia's forgiving abilities and the need to set things right for poor Lloyd, he and his mother become part of Miss Julia's household and family. Over the next seven years Miss Julia, Hazel Marie, Lillian, and a cast of characters create hilarious
Luckily, there is no way to define this genre because Miss Julia knows no limits. The result is humor, mystery, drama, delicious southern gossip, strong women, colorful characters, and a continuing plot. This is also one series I can highly recommend listening to the audio version, because the women selected to read these stories give the listener a real sense of the southern voice, and that only adds to the personal humor. Enjoy.
