Miss Julia's Marvelous Makeover by Ann Ross

Ann Ross’s fifteenth novel featuring Miss Julia and her friends and family is a comfortable and warm as a quilt. In Miss Julia’s Marvelous Makeover Ann Ross introduces new characters from Miss Julia’s distant relatives that Miss Julia would like to keep that way or as far away as possible. Miss Julia’s cousin sends her granddaughter, Trixie, to learn manners from Miss Julia and to find a husband in the small southern town of Abbotsville. This town is so well drawn that it often seems as if it is another character in the book.  During this book’s summer Miss Julia must deal with this unwanted house guest plus her beloved husband, Sam has a minor health scare and decides to run for state senate. Yet through it all Miss Julia remains true to herself and steadfast in her faith.
