I was very disappointed that the sequel to Cold Sassy Tree is an incomplete novel. When I purchased Leaving Cold Sassy, I understood that the author had passed away while writing the book but had thought it was completed by someone else based upon the author's notes. This was not the case. About 150 pages in, the book just stops and the remainder of the book are author and editor notes. The initial 150 pages were disjointed. The story line was sad and disappointing. The likable characters were n [...]
Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this on the book shelf at the local library was so disappointed that Olive Ann Burns died before she finished her 2nd novel. You get a taste of what she was going to write and you get the back drop to the weaving of her parents story and Will Tweedy's story. That part is interesting and tells of a remarkable Olive Ann as she's dealing with cancer - so bright and positive in her attitude. Always looking on the bright side. I LOVED Cold Sassy Tree --- 5 stars wi [...]
Cold Sassy Tree was great but this sequel probably should not have been published esp since it was not finished.
Just as an aside of sorts - just so interesting - and difficult - when an author passes before a book is complete Such as with Suite Français and the Aubrey/Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian, to name just a few. Not only terribly sad - of course - but what a conundrum for the publisher/editor/et al. I don't envy their decision as to whether to try to finish & wrap up the story (depending, I assume& hope, on how many notes and directions were left behind, which is hopefully a larger fact [...]
I was not impressed with this sequel. I know the author was dying but the book was really sad. I enjoyed finding out about the characters and what happened to them but I just could not get into the book.
Enjoyed this book and loved the characters so much. Loved their closeness and caring for one another and how they all pulled together. It had that comfy feeling when you think back in time of your family and the loving memories it brings up. Think you will enjoy this.
I enjoyed the follow up to cold sassy and liked where Mrs Burns was going with this story, I was very sorry that she passed but I felt that they stayed true to the story. I liked the back story of the author as well.
so i got used to the dialectd i liked the characters and the story but I hate sad endings soally destroyed the book for me. I understand that life happens but I read to enjoy myself not have a bad ending. I really liked the narrator Will Tweedy.
I liked Cold Sassy Tree a lot better the Leaving Cold Sassy ~ took a while to get into reading it since it has a strong southern writing to it
Interesting look at a boys life in the early 1900's. There were some very funny stories he had to tell.
Wonderful yard reminiscent of Fannie Flagg or Richard Peck
Great characters. Definitely cried at partsbut i am 9 months pregnant.
I enjoyed these very much.
