Gone to Green

By January 8, 2013

Follow me on:

Just finished reading several books in the "Green" series by Judy Christie. The series starts with a character (Lois) who goes to Green, Louisiana to run a newspaper left to her by her friend Ed. Everything is new to her (the town, the people, the way of life) and she finds herself making friends with people she wouldn't have normally made friends with.

Gone to Green

It's the friendships in these books (there are five in the series) that really made an impression on me. I think if you've ever moved to a new city and had to start over with meeting people and making connections, it can be very tough. It's also more difficult because you have a new job, you might not know your way around, and you're so out of your comfort zone you don't even remember what your "old" life was like. But those times can be exactly when you make all new friendships with people that really help you transform your life.

I've added Gone to Green (the first in the series) to my list of novels about friendship. Here are the other four: Goodness Gracious Green, The Glory of Green, Rally 'Round Green, and Downtown Green.
