    Slow Books It's time to regain the pleasure of reading Adults and the Slow Books movement. What better way to be part of the slow movement than to have a good read. The Slow Books movement is about getting back into the love of reading good books. Few people these days spend time each day reading for sheer enjoyment. The depiction of a male dominated society and the lack of women's rights inspires a real appreciation for the women who forged paths toward equality. The good and bad of the Old South is woven into a story that captivates the reader. An excellent book club selection!” — Jackie Willey, Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC.
