Southern Man

I have just finished reading Southern Man by Connie Chastain.  It is an interesting book about Troy Stevenson and his family, Maxwell Ingram, Troy’s best friend, Brooke Emerson, new employee and obsessed with Troy (this girl is trouble), and some other assorted characters.  Troy is the VP of Marketing at Shearwater-Ingram and they have just created an Equality and Fairness Office (EFO).   This book is set in the 1980’s and women were starting to climb the corporate ladder (mostly men were in management positions). This book follows Troy and his family as they deal with different situations/life events. The Stevenson’s are a good, southern family living in Verona, Georgia.   We get to see how the family handles the good times and the bad.  I enjoyed the book, but found it a little long (I felt that some parts of the book could have been shortened).  I enjoy Ms. Chastain’s writing and look forward to reading more books by this author.  I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.  Happy Reading and have a lovely Sunday evening!
