Cold Sassy tree / Olive Ann Burns.


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.-- NoveList.
