The line-up has been announced.  Barring any last minute substitutions, the players are readying themselves on the sidelines. Favorites from previous seasons are making late career appearances.  Football season? Heck no, fall book releases!

While you are impatiently waiting for the latest titles by Donna Tartt and Lee Smith or sequels by Pat Conroy, John Grisham and Stephen King, check out this late summer selection.

Heart of Palm by Laura Lee Smith serves up a classically styled southern family saga. This debut novel is set in the small intercoastal town of Utina, Florida where the lazy back road ways of the past and the big bucks development of future collide.The Bravo family features a cast of  star crossed lovers, lost dreamers as well as elderly eccentrics fueled by Little Debbie cakes.  Pass the fried conch, you’ll want to enjoy every bite.
