Women's Fiction | Historical

Palmetto Moon inspired The Huffington Post to rave, “It is always nice to discover a new talented author and Kim Boykin is quite a find.” Now, she delivers a novel of a woman picking up the pieces of her life with the help of two spirited, elderly sisters in South Carolina.

April, 1953. Nettie Gilbert has cherished her time studying to be a music teacher at Columbia College in South Carolina, but as graduation approaches, she can’t wait to return to her family—and her childhood sweetheart, Brooks—in Alabama. But just days before her senior recital, she gets a letter from her mama telling her that Brooks is getting married . . . to her own sister.

Devastated, Nettie drops out of school and takes a job as live-in help for two old-maid sisters, Emily and Lurleen Eldridge. Emily is fiercely protective of the ailing Lurleen, but their sisterhood has weathered many storms. And as Nettie learns more about their lives on a trip to see a faith healer halfway across the country, she’ll discover that love and forgiveness will one day lead her home . . .

Champagne!
(Marissa Yip-Young 1:37pm August 5, 2015)

Since getting diabetes, I can no longer have Shirley Temples, Singapore Slings, or Rye/Cokes. Surprisingly, my doctor said I could drink Beer, though! So I drink over 10 cups of water every day and sometimes celebrate with beer....
(
Elaine Seymour 3:01pm August 5, 2015)

My favorite drink to celebrate a book would be a strawberry
moijto.
(
Sarah Bauman 3:02pm August 5, 2015)

I mostly drink water mixed with Crystal Light, all kinds of flavors.
(
Wilma Frana 9:22pm August 5, 2015)

I love to curl up with a hot cup of coffee and a good book
(
Trish Wakeman 9:23pm August 5, 2015)

Hmm...I'd have to say a nice, cold bottle of water on a hot day...or a hot cocoa
with marshmellows on a chilly day!
(
Lily Shah 12:55pm August 6, 2015)

Coffee with Kahlua and Baileys topped with whipped cream.

(
Donna Antonio 8:33am August 7, 2015)

I'm a tea drinker. I like to do it up special and make a pot of my favorite "Monk's Blend" and why stop at just a drink? Scones or some special cookies are a must as well!
(
Flora Presley 11:05am August 7, 2015)

I've been drinking Hint water. It's very tasty and has
helped curb my addiction to Diet Coke. I also love a good
ice cold sweet tea.
(
Sandie White 1:00am August 8, 2015)

Since it's summertime, I would celebrate with a pina colada! Thanks for the chance to win! :D
(

My drink would be Darjeeling tea!
(
Patricia Simpkin 10:03am August 8, 2015)

Normally I like to have a nice, cold Coke, but in the mixed drink category, since I have no need to make a punch bowl full here, to make a drink per glass, all you need is some Orange Juice, and a little Peach Schnapps to taste!! If you don't care for Peach, you can always substitute Strawberry, which is just as good!! My other favorite is a Black Russian, when I'm feeling naughty, which isn't too often. That is half Kahlua and half Vodka!! lol I'm looking forward to reading your book, and congratulate you on another hit!! It looks like I'll be putting my knitting aside for a day or two to be swept away to your wonderful world!! Great cover!!

Virginia Clayton 12:04pm August 8, 2015)

I'm a southerner who prefers to have a steamy cup of hot tea, even in the summer but with the air conditioner putting out cool air. It's soothing.
(
Anna Speed 1:04pm August 8, 2015)

Cosmo's are the best
(
Jeri Dickinson 1:56pm August 8, 2015)

I enjoy Strawberry Lemonade, but your recipe looks so good

next week!
(
LaCinda Jameson 6:33pm August 8, 2015)

can't beat a nice glass of wine to raise a toast!
(
Diane Sallans 8:14pm August 8, 2015)
