Publisher's Summary

After grad school, Shay Dixon feels like she's had enough for awhile. Inspired by her spiritual adviser - a soul-soothing blues player named Nina Simon - Shay calls her estranged mother Nona for the first time in years, and shocks herself by asking if it would be okay to come home for a while. Things were difficult before, as Nona spent all her time hitting the bottle and carousing with good-for-nothings while her daughter was growing up. But now Nona is different, sober, well-adjusted - and with a new baby named Sunny! Shay feels herself changing as well - but sometimes life takes unexpected turns.

Read by narrator Cherise Boothe, Orange Mint and Honey is a touching novel of forgiveness and redemption, of taking the good with the bad, and always hoping for a sweet ending.

If you have a chance you should listen to this book it's a roller coaster of emotions, but enjoyable none the less. The author did a great job of letting her characters come alive and grow right before your eyes.

Cherise Boothe

Stereotypical ending.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment with the mirroring of Glory's mother's life. Too stereotypical of single parents.

Any additional comments?

The reformation of an alcoholic is respectable. There is a level of superiority and all knowing aura that is disturbing, though.

A nice brew of writing

This is simply amazing in premise and presentation. The narrator does a tremendous job in capturing the richness of characters. Well worth a listen and read
