Publisher's Summary

Sometimes what your life is missing is an eccentric group of older ladies to take you under their wing?.?.?. 

When Rae Sutton’s mama passes away and leaves her the house where she grew up, Rae can’t imagine how the little old place might restore her broken life. Mourning the recent loss of her marriage, she takes the house and settles back into her tiny hometown with her fourteen-year-old daughter, Molly Margaret, and their overweight dog. 

There she’s embraced by her mother’s close-knit circle of friends, the Third Thursday ladies. Though almost half their age and far less confident of positive outcomes, Rae joins their ministry-slash-book-club-slash-gossip circle and allows the women to speak wry honesty and witty humor into her tired heart. As a new career and a new romance bring their own complications, Rae relies on the unlikely family she’s found and begins to wonder if her future holds more hope than she ever could have imagined. 

“Wise, witty, and full of Southern charm,?Bless Your Heart, Rea Sutton?is as refreshing as a tall glass of sweet tea on a hot summer day!” —Denise Hunter, bestselling author of the Riverbend Romances 

  • Sweet, stand-alone Southern contemporary women's fiction 
  • Coming soon from Susannah B. Lewis: Della & Darby

The story is nice, but the narrator was not

I liked the story in this book. Predictable and sweet. But, wow, was the narrator awful! She couldn’t do male voices at all and you could barely tell one woman’s voice from another. She “read” the story badly, often putting the emphasis on the wrong word in a sentence, as if she wasn’t well prepared. And worst of all, she spoke with a painful-to-hear “vocal fry,” catching her words in her throat. It definitely took away from my enjoyment of the book.

Great story if you can get past the narrator

The narrator tried to read in a southern voice to match the author’s background in telling the story. Epic fail. Some of the phrases and words that are typical of a southern lady were mispronounced and misinterpreted. I love Susannah Lewis. The narrator, not so much.

Such a great novel!

Susannah B Lewis, I LOVED this book! I wish the storyline had continued on longer. I felt like the reader is left a little hanging with not knowing the hows and whens and wheres, but I still loved it! Please write a sequel!!!
I wasn’t fond of the narration. The narrator was nearly monotone. I really with the author had narrated this audiobook—she has a wonderful Southern voice.
Overall, definitely recommend for good clean Christian comedy & romance!

The girl reading the story What kind of annoying with her old lady voices every time I was listening to my book my husband had to leave the room because he hated her voice. But the book was so good that I overlooked her annoying voice.

Loved it!

I loved the third Thursday ministry meetings. The characters personalities meshed well. Had some laugh out loud moments with heartfelt real life relatable moments intertwined as well. Perfect easy listening. Hope to see it in a movie someday!!

Great book!

I loved this book! I laughed and cried. I have listened to Susannah's previous books that were based on her life. This was my first experience with her fiction, and it was fabulous! I am of similar age to the author and main character in this book, and I really loved all of the references to our childhood, as well as this stage of life.

Enjoyed!

As always, I LOVE Susannah 's writings and this was my first one to listen to on audible (I have the others in book form).
Entertaining, hitting all of my emotions, as I laughed and cried. Fell in love with her characters and being from the same southern, small town atmosphere as Rae, I identified with so many of the people, parts and scenes.
Great summer read!
