review The Right Thing Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB T gripped me from the beginning Anna Jean Mayhew author of The Dry Grass of AugustBefore you read this book make some coffee grab the chocolate sit down in front of the fire and don't plan on getting up for a long lovely time Cathy Lamb author of If You Could See What I SeeAmy Connor has combined all of the right elements to make The Right Thing a fantastic read She's written a touching story about a woman's search for herself and the endurance of a childhood friendship outlined it in humor and delivered it with beautiful prose A wonderful debut Mary Simses author of The Irresistible Blueberry Bake Shop CaféTold with natural Southern lyricism and full of surprises both uirky and heartfelt The Right Thing is a compassionate reminder about how every choice at every fork in the road has the power to change the rest of our lives sometimes far better than we ever could have imagined Kaya McLaren author of How I Came to Sparkle Aga. I wouldn t recommend this book It was ok nothing There was no depth and it just felt contrived I get what the author was trying to do but I don t feel like she succeeded As a reader I never felt the supposed bond between Starr and Annie and because of this nothing really worked Also the whole southern society stuff was ridiculous and annoying Not for me that s for sure The most interesting storyline was Annie s mother and the most likeable character was Aunt Too Tai both were barely touched on in the book And the pure cheesiness of the one liners from Ted after the truck encounter were cringeworthy It had potential to be a great story of friendship but instead it took the easy highway to chick lit stupidity with a southern tilt

review The Right Thing Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB On a scorching August day in 1963 seven year old Annie Banks meets the girl who will become her best friend Skinny outspoken Starr Dukes and her wandering preacher father may not be accepted by polite society in Jackson Mississippi but Annie and Starr are too busy sharing secrets and playing elaborate games of ueen for a Day to care Then as suddenly as she appeared in Annie's life Starr disappearsAnnie grows up to follow the path ordained for pretty well to do Jackson women marrying an ambitious lawyer filling her days with shopping and charity work She barely recognizes Starr when they meet twenty seven years after that first fateful summer but the bond formed so long ago uickly reemerges Starr pregnant by a powerful married man who wants her to get out of town has nowhere to turn And Annie determined not to fail her friend this time agrees to drive Starr to New Orleans to get money she's owed During the eventful road trip th. 3 stars I was rather disappointed with the way this book unfolded We are introduced to Annie Size a married Jackson Mississippi society lady She goes about her duties with a lacking enthusiasm and while shopping at an exclusive department store encounters her old childhood friend Starr Dukes whom she has not seen in twenty seven years A friendship that was intense and meaningful to two seven year old girls is now put to the test Can they rectify this friendship Annie decides that yes she can after she agrees to accompany Starr to New Orleans During this expedition Annie begins to reflect on key childhood moments and memories I enjoyed these parts of the book the most One can sense how much little girl Annie is craving friendship and attention The scene of The Bridge Party was hysterical or as Starr would say in her southern accent huhsterical but there were also memories when things weren t uite so funny in Annie s life The summer she spent with her Aunt Too Tai was touching and heartfelt But it is the current day story of Annie and all the repercussions of this trip to New Orleans that I found to be predictable and mundane A decent read but not on my recommend list

review The Right Thing Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB At follows Annie will confront the gap between friendship and responsibility; between her safe ordered existence and the dreams she's grown accustomed to denying Moving witty and beautifully told The Right Thing is a story of love and courage the powerful impact of friendship and the small acts that can anchor a life or with a little luck steer it in the right direction at last Mix Fannie Flagg Rebecca Wells Kathryn Stockett then add just a dash of Flannery O'Connor and you'll wind up with the wholly original voice that is Amy Conner's In this deceptively breezy novel of Southern women and the disaster and triumph of long term friendships not to mention racetracks and horses Ms Conner has staked a claim to her own Southern turf Bret Lott New York Times bestselling author of JewelThis riveting debut novel shows how true friendship can span a social gulf and endure even across a chasm of time The Right Thing is a page turner tha. Firstly this review is written from my moral convictions and my literary point of view I live in Mississippi I m in a book club so this book was chosen for a Mississippi contemporary author bookSecondly I don t claim to be a professional book reviewer I simply review books through my experience as the reader I had high hopes for this book The cover looks is inviting giving the book a sense of innocence that one can find here in Mississippi The title The Right Thing is also a reflection of the theme throughout the story This is where my moral conviction influences my review Annie is telling her story vacillating from her childhood to present day Throughout her childhood and present day adulthood Annie finds herself with the daily struggle of doing the right thing Measured by the convictions in which I hold my own standards there are only a few circumstances that I believe were actually the right thing to do One being that Annie welcomes and befriends the little girl Starr who is the daughter of wandering preacher Due to Starr s circumstances she s always labeled the white trash of the community while Annie lives amongst the high socialites of the community In the world of both classes it s taboo for them to interact But Annie does the right thing and befriends Starr seeing passed the social class taboos and in spite of the ridicule it brings her from family and friends Annie also learns that sometimes choosing the right thing doesn t always result in the most rewarding conseuences Annie s desire to do the right thing is certainly honoring but some of her choices aren t morally right This is what I don t like about the story In a culture that embraces the right thing euates to whatever makes you happy I can t truthfully enjoy or condone the way this author allows Annie to finally obtain the ultimate right thing for her life Annie makes a conscience decision to do the right thing for herself because she feels she has always done the right thing for everyone else The moral of the story which is ultimately the ending is that whatever makes us happy is the right thing and this is something I just can t support if it was the author s intent to justify Annie s choice in the end thus justifying such decisions made by all humans Now from a literary point of view This is Amy s debut novel I did not enjoy the writing as it s not well written The book drowns in clich s There are too many and many of them do not make sense to me The analogies she uses to try to make the reader understand her statement didn t do the writing any favors As for the character development I don t think Du Duane Annie s husband s character is developed enough to warrant the ending of why Annie makes the choice she does When reading books I try to resonate with something in the story I did find one aspect of Annie s life that resonated with me Living the socialite life because it s expected or because it s the class you were born into it doesn t guarantee happiness In fact it can result in a life of superficial friendships and constant acting Annie comes to realize this as an adult And while her desire to no longer live this type of lifestyle that isn t the problem it s the solution she chooses to get out of it just isn t the right thing For the sensitive reader you will find strong language throughout the book There are elements of infidelity mild racial issues part of the story takes place during the 60s transgender mild religious mockery
