earlsThe title of The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore whet my appetite for a good down-home book about female relationships.  This book delivers a huge helping of humor, sentiment, and sage advice.

Moore’s novel revolves around three middle-aged African-American women dubbed the “Supremes”, who live in a small town in Indiana.  They have known each other since childhood sharing colorful histories and healthy doses of secrets.  It is witty and sarcastic and I loved it.  The story also contains its share of “dead” townsfolk, including oddly enough, Eleanor Roosevelt, who throw in their humorous takes on life which only sweetens the pot.

I felt a kinship with these characters, delighted in their successes, and grieved their losses.  This is a delightful novel all the way around!  I will hope for second helpings to come in the future from Mr. Moore!
