"Something Blue" chronicles one week in the lives of three generations of southern women trying to survive the most stressful tradition in the history of mankind: a wedding. Ellen, the bride, is frantic enough with thirty-six Yankees of her fiancee's family flying in to her sleepy Georgia hometown, but she has her own ghosts -- and her own family -- to contend with. Her strong-willed mother is being sued in the latest skirmish with the town's only other hairdresser. Her grandmother -- who still sleeps with a gun under her pillow -- is having a secret affair with the widower next door. Scarlet, her oldest sister, is the Bridesmaid form hell who runs the wedding as if she is planning D-Day, and Kate, the other sister, is reeling from a boyfriend who dumped her with only a note left on the refrigerator. Through trips to the local alligator farm, illicit fumblings in the church's baptismal, gunfire, allergy attacks, embarrassing tattoos, a lascivious father of the groom, the lesbian life-partner of the groom's grandmother, a dozen calls to the psychiatrist, and an accidental overdose of Valium, everyone survives to learn that love is all you need. This is Southern-fried chick-lit with warmth and humor; imagine "Steel Magnolias" meets "Bridget Jones."Über den Autor:
