Nonny Frett understands the meaning of "between a rock and a hard place." She's got two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy." She's got two men: her husband, easing out the back door; and her best friend, laying siege to her heart in her front yard. She has a job that holds her in the city, and she's addicted to a little girl stuck deep in the country. And she has two families: the Fretts, who stole her and raised her right; and the Crabtrees, who lost her and won't forget how they were done wrong. In Between, Georgia, population 90, a feud that began the night Nonny was born is escalating, and a random act of violence is about to ignite a stash of family secrets. This might be just what the town needs, if only Nonny wasn't sitting in the middle of it.--From publisher description.… (mer)

Romeo and Juliet, McCoys and Hatfields were dueling families; now Frettes and Crabapples join the ranks. Mrs. Jackson has again written a tale filled with quirky Southern characters. Between, GA. is a small speck of a town near Athens and Atlanta. Bernese Frette owns half the town and her sworn enemy is Ona Crabtree, a mean drunk. The hatred between the two women stems from the fact that Bernese blind and deaf sister is the adopted Mother of the book's protagonist, Nooney and Ona is her biological Grandmother.

The story is a sad commentary about life in a small town but very truthful. ( )

I found this book on a rack at the hospital and read it to pass the time. Between is a town in Georgia which seems to be inhabited mostly by 2 families who are often at odds with each other, but who have undeniable ties to each other. I'm still not sure I've figured out the dynamics of either family. ( )

This was a good summer book choice. Very entertaining, easy to read and it wrapped its loose ends nicely. The story was very believable and I think I saw some of my own family in there. ( )

This book felt really authentic. The characters really popped, and it was great to read a book with a main character who was deaf and blind. ( )

A book about rivalries (which are quite popular in the South) and small deep south towns. Of course Joshilyn Jackson gives the audio book some great humor as she narrates, and includes likeable characters (Hatfields vs. McCoys), quirky, and fun banter between all parties. An array of independent women, outspoken, sassy, and families which stick together and protect their own. The book is about total family dysfunction; however, is a heartfelt story and of course as always, entertaining --loved Bernice!

Jackson does a job explaining Usher’s Syndrome and the independence of people who are deaf-blind. The details of the interpreter’s life, and differences between city and county life. I would highly recommend her latest book “Someone Else’s Love Story”, “My Miraculous”, as well as “Backseat Saints”-currently reading “God’s In Alabama” and loving it!

The war began thirty years, nine months, and seven days ago, when I was deaf and blind, floating silent and serene inside Hazel Crabtree.
