Anyone who has read the best-selling Mama Makes Up Her Mind or listened to Bailey White's commentaries on NPR knows that she is a storyteller of inimitable wit and charm. Now, in her stunningly accomplished first novel, she introduces us to the peculiar yet lovable people who inhabit a small town in south Georgia. Meet serious, studious Roger, the peanut pathologist and unlikely love object of half the town's women. Meet Roger's ex-mother-in-law, Louise, who teams up with an ardent typographer in an attempt to attract outer-space invaders with specific combinations of letters and numbers. And meet Della, the bird artist who captivates Roger with the sensible but enigmatic notes she leaves on things she throws away at the Dumpster ("This fan works, but makes a clicking sound and will not oscillate"). nbsp;nbsp; Heartbreakingly tender, often hilarious, Quite a Year for Plums is a delectable treat from a writer who has been called a national treasure.… (mer)

A quiet story that, although not sad, really makes you want to give someone a hug. ( )

In this novel,we meet several characters that are very well developed by the author. You feel that they could be the men or women living down the road. But - they don't ever really DO anything. The whole book seems to be developing the characters - there is no plot. I spent a week reading their conversations with each other, waiting for something to happen - and it never did! ( )

An odd collection of odd people without any cohesive story line. Taken individually, the people were interesting. There was Della, painter of birds who captures Roger's interest with the notes she leaves on things she throws away at the Dumpster. Roger, a serious peanut pathologist who inexplicably seems to be the love interest of half the women in town. Louise, Roger's ex-mother-in-law who takes up with a typographer in an attempt to attract outer-space travelers through letters and numbers. But there was no story. You enter chapters into the middle of conversations which are going nowhere. All in all, I was glad to say goodbye to this group. ( )
