Litfuse Review: High Cotton by:Debby Mayne

 High Cotton
About the Book:
Some families are filled with so much love they can’t help but drive each other crazy 

Shay Henke has mixed feelings about going to her family’s next reunion. On the one hand, she’ll get to see everyone in her mama's family—folks she loves unconditionally. On the other hand, she knows there’ll be more drama than you can shake a stick at.

The days leading up to the event bring one surprise after another. First Shay must deal with her sister-in-law’s deep, dark secret. Then she has to contend with the childish ways of her business-mogul twin cousins. And when her high school crush wants to be her date to the reunion . . . well, it may have been a dream come true for Shay’s teen self, but the woman she’s become doesn’t know what to make of this.

Shay’s contentment is challenged, and she’s determined to shake things up a bit. But will she find the excitement she’s looking for, or will Shay realize she prefers her quiet and predictable life? One thing is certain: Life in the Bucklin family is never boring. 

My Review:
 Life in the south to me, is the best life. We have our times of upheaval but it usually slows back down. We live a life where the front porch is usually called a sitting porch and the fireflies are called lightning bugs. This southern life is how I grew up and I wouldn't change it for anything.

 My children were born in Alabama and many of the ideals and situations described in High Cotton are similar to mine. The setting of the story is about four hours from my home. Life in Alabama is about the same as Mississippi maybe just a tad more fast paced but basically the same. I love my life here but the humidity is something I can do without.

 Shay on the other hand isn't quite sure as an adult returning for a family reunion if she misses the old home place. So the story takes you through the twists and turns and encounters she makes trying to make sense of it all. But she has to take an honest look by the time the story ends to determine if she is missing out on life here in this small town, after all.

 A great down home country life type story that warms your heart.
