From Inside My Book Fort - - - "Downtown" by Anne Rivers Siddons


Today Annabelle and I are reading another old fave.

"Downtown" by the incomparable Anne Rivers Siddons.

I'm a fan of a lot of southern writers, but as far as I'm concerned, they all follow in Mr. Siddons' footsteps, and she set that bar high.

I moved to Atlanta during the time "Downtown" takes place.  Reading it today, all these years later, I can say to you that "Yes.  This is how it was."

The good and the bad - Anne Rivers Siddons gets it just right.

"The year is 1966, a time of innocence, possibility,and freedom. And for Atlanta, the country, and one woman making her way in a changing world, nothing will be the same . . ."
