A difficult read actually! The dialect made me have to slow down and actually FOCUS on every word (versus my predictions in my mind of what will happen next).
Endearing story of a woman who lives her life as expected, until she finds real love. Hard not to love a book that is summarized (for me) in the last chapter by the primary character.
