Front Porch Lemonade by JudiLynn Taylor is a heartwarming picture of life in Eubanks, a small southern town. The story revolves around six women who meet on Miss Abby’s porch for lemonade as often as possible and whenever a need arises. They share with us the story of their everyday lives. The reader is privileged to share in the good, the bad, the sad, the silly, and the fun times. We enjoy the antics of a small boy who loves jumping into the pool naked; we cry when a teenage boy dies; we hope for a good outcome when cancer strikes. We cheer when people get what they deserve and boo for the stuff that goes wrong.

JudiLynn Taylor has written a book that beautifully presents the joys and sorrows of our lives. It was so easy to find a little piece of myself in each one of the ladies. I longed to be invited to sit on the porch and sip some lemonade with my new friends. I was so sad when I turned the last page and realized I would no longer be a part of the stories shared on the front porch. Front Porch Lemonade is a must-read for all ladies who enjoy a good smile, a good cry, strong friendships, and who have faced the heartaches of living and loving. I give this book a five plus rating and highly recommend it. Thank you, JudiLynn, for touching my heart with your caring story. I am hoping you take us back to Front Porch Lemonade in a second book and continue to share Miss Abby and her friends' stories with us.
