Now, during their most challenging year yet, dutiful, proud, and talented Clarice must struggle to keep up appearances as she deals with her husbands humiliating infidelities. Beautiful, fragile Barbara Jean is rocked by the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair. And fearless Odette engages in the most terrifying battle of her life while contending with the idea that she has inherited more than her broad frame from her notorious pot-smoking mother, Dora.

With wit and love, style and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together four intertwined love stories, three devoted allies, and two sprightly earthbound spirits in a big-hearted debut novel that embraces the lives of people you will never forget.

I give this a thumbs up because it made me laugh out loud in the dentist waiting room while my son was getting a checkup. My favourite part, the ghosts that talk to one of the main characters....they are FUNNY.

A fun read/listen. With friends like the Supremes, you‘d be set for life.

I liked it. It's all about the characters/relationships. Somewhat reminiscent of Terry McMillan's and Fannie Flagg's work.

Jaimelire It‘s been sitting in my TBR pile forever. I should give it a read soon. 5mo
JoyBlue @Jaimelire Oooh—I hope you do & that you enjoy it at least as much as I did! 😉 5mo

A book club choice, this takes place in a fictional southern Indiana town (my home state). It‘s about three middle-aged women and their ups and downs throughout the years. Reminded me a lot of southern fiction, which I can give or take. Wouldn‘t say I loved it, but it was decent and a light, easy read.

The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat Buffet by Edward Kelsey Moore - 5*
Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean are 3 very different young women who form a bond of incredible friendship. Their story is told over a few years decades, with the use of flashbacks.

The greatest quality of this book is that it touches on some very hard facts of life while also being extremely hilarious.

This may be my favorite book of the year, so fa

Edward Kelsey Moore (EKM) is extremely talented when it comes to describing relationships. My #FavLiteraryCouple is Odette & James from EKM‘s first book.

I really enjoyed this story of friendship. It had a lot of humor, but covered some serious issues. The characters were great and I couldn‘t help but like them all despite their flaws. Read for #pbt decathlon challenge and #popsugar challenge (Author a different ethnicity).

Susanita I loved this book! Did you know there‘s a sequel? 2y

Loved, loved, loved this one. It was a page turner for me. Family, friends, death and finding love again all in one.

I really loved this #ownvoices book about 3 women of colour - friends for decades. It's about how their life changed, what happens now that they're old, what will happen in the future. 5/5 ⭐️

😊it was truly a good visit to Plainview, Indiana to see the lives of the Supremes unfold. It was honest & funny; the characters reminded me if some of my own relatives. There's gossip, racism, mysticism & DV but you'll still want to be a part if the community.

This was another find through the summer #readinglist at my library a few years ago. It's a touching story of friendship, family, and community. There's also a hilarious wedding scene that reads like John Irving meets Tyler Perry. #whitewedding #rockinmay

Cinfhen Love your photo and I chuckled at your John Irving /Tyler Perry remark! Haven't read the book, but now I'm intrigued... 2y

Pick! Edward Kelsey Moore wanted to capture the friendship between women, and he does so successfully as we follow "The Supremes" through births, marriage and deaths.

An enjoyable book about friendship, life, and the forces beyond. Also an excellent audio option when stitching. #litsystitchers

For #favbookishfriendships I immediately thought of Clarice, Barbara Jean & Odette. If they could adopt me as a friend, I'd be a lucky gal. If you want a book that shows the highs & lows of being in a relationship, this is that book. #Augustphotochallenge @TheSpinecrackersBookClub

I really enjoyed this book. It's a story about family and community, and especially the particular kind of friendship that grows through sharing many years and experiences. There are parts that will make you angry, parts will make you cry, and a wedding that will make you laugh until you cry.
