Miss Julia Speaks Her MindBery a kidnapping and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death Fast paced and charming with a sure sense of comic drama a cast of crazy characters and a strong Southern cadence  Miss Julia Speaks Her Kindle #180 Julia Speaks Her Mind will delight listeners from start to en I had an interesting time deciding how to rate this book Overall I really enjoyed the read However there were moments during the book where I want to throw it across the room 'Really' I yelled mostly inside my head 'You Miss Julia are naive to the point of idiocy Who does that' But then I too a step back and realized that Miss Julia is exactly the type of person who would be that naive truly that naive And that is the moment that the brilliance of the writing hit me 'OF COURSE' I now yelled still mostly inside my head When people are raised in andor live for long periods of time in families andor relationships that are psychologically and emotionally abusive as did Julia they literally do get to where they do not know their own minds People in this type of abusive situation are so used to substituting someone else's judgments for their own that they stop realizing that they even have their own ideas And that is the place where Ross's writing becomes so fantastic This book is essentially a coming of age book but sometimes the reader forgets this as the protagonist is a senior citizen presumably long 'of age' However it is not until the death of her husband with the triggering event of the arrival of the mistress and son that Miss Julia starts to figure out who she is as a human being independent of the dictates of the male self appointed authority figures around her Her growth through this process is wonderful to see even if it is a rocky process occasionally causing the reader to want to throw the book and yell at the people inside it But it is these bumps and hurdles and slip backs that make the process and the characters seem real Miss Julia is also not the only one going through growth processes Lillian Hazel Marie Little Lloyd and some of the others all start to look at the world a different way and to make changes in themselves The push back from some of the other characters in response to these developments is unfortunately all to real too Anyone who has worked on healing and separating from abusive relationships can attest that those on the other side of the relationship and those who though not necessarily abusive themselves are used to someone behaving in a compliant way will pushback against that person's progress in order to maintain the existing power dynamics To see the characters grow and to see them interact with one another was ver satisfying as they each 'came of age'I will be looking up other books in this series
