A Few Genuine Sweet  Questions Answered

Q. Is there really a Sass, Georgia?

A. Geographers say ‘no.’ Faith begs to differ.

Q. Where is Sass — in which part of Georgia?

A. It’s near Pitney, in Rumpp County. (That's not on your map?)

Q. Are there bears in Sass?

A. Yes.

Q: Which “lady writer” said, “Love does not triumph easily or without pain”? (Chapter 26)

A: Madeleine L’Engle.

Q. Besides the stars, who said, “All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.” (Chapter 10)

A. Julian of Norwich and, later, T.S. Eliot.

Q. Will there be a sequel to Genuine Sweet ?

A. Genuine won’t be starring (ha!) in another book, but we hope you’ll visit Sass again when Hush Cantrell shares her story, Sneak Thief.
