Summary
"It wasn't that Barbara didn't believe Aiken existed, exactly. She just couldn't believe in a place as delightful and picturesque as the one her sister, Marti Healy, was writing about on a regular basis as a contributing columnist for her new hometown newspaper, The Aiken Standard. Aiken was, after all, a place none of her family members had yet visited. So, when Marti discovered her sibling's doubt and eye-rolling reactions to her writing, she responded by creating a column about it. And from this column came the title of the book.Within the book are 50 of her columns; each one a tiny self-contained story, all gleaned from her experiences of living in a small southern town. The writing emphasizes a strong sense of place and “theater of the mind”; putting the reader in the center of each story. Her personal style of warmth and empathy, and her ability to find the interesting and intriguing aspects of whatever she comes across in life, keeps her a popular columnist as well as a speaker on these works"--www.martihealybooks.com
