Meet Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean in the New York Times best-selling novel . . .

Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is home away from home for this inseparable Plainview, Indiana, trio. Dubbed "the Supremes" by high school pals in the tumultuous 1960s, they weather life's storms together for the next four decades. Now, during their most challenging year yet, dutiful, proud, and talented Clarice must struggle to keep up appearances as she deals with her husband's humiliating infidelities. Beautiful, fragile Barbara Jean is rocked by the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair. And fearless Odette engages in the most terrifying battle of her life while contending with the idea that she has inherited more than her broad frame from her notorious pot-smoking mother, Dora.

Through marriage, children, happiness, and the blues, these strong, funny women gather each Sundayat the same table at Earl's diner for delicious food, juicy gossip, occasional tears, and uproarious banter.

With wit and love, style and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together four intertwined love stories, three devoted allies, and two sprightly earthbound spirits in a big-hearted debut novel that embraces the lives of people you will never forget.

The first few chapters are cliche but then you come to love and appreciate the characters for who they are. Think: "The Help" meets "Fried Green Tomatoes". I laughed out loud a couple of times and I wished I were as sassy as Odette.

This is my favorite book I've listened to in 2015 - yes, it's only March, but I think it's going to stay at the top of the list.
It is so creative and funny to me! I hope Edward Kelsey Moore writes another soon.

This was such a wonderful book. Loved it in the audiobook version. A fun journey the 3 friends who call themselves the "Supremes" took growing up together to adulthood. Laughed out loud at times and cried too. Good - Good book!

This audiobook is a delight! I had not heard of it prior to borrowing it but I am so glad I found it. The 3 main characters leap out as distinct personalities but even the sub-characters are well developed. I agree with the opinion noted here that if you enjoy Fannie Flagg, you'll enjoy this book. Would definitely recommend.

Read-alike for The Help

While I enjoyed this book and thought it was better than average (hence the 3 star rating) and thought it was a light, fun read, I thought the writing was just so-so. The characters are quirky and fun, the story line while being a serious subject was told in a very amusing way and the friendships were touching. I think readers who enjoy Fannie Flag would like this book.
