"This book is too good to keep to yourself. Read it aloud with someone you love, then send it to a friend. But be sure to keep a copy for yourself, because you'll want to read it again and again."
Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey
Raney is a small-town Baptist. Charles is a liberal from Atlanta. And RANEY is the story of their marriage. Charming, wise, funny, and truthful, it is a novel for everyone to love.
"A real jewel."

This is one of the first Ballantine titles I ever read and it has become one of my very favorites. It tells the tale of two newlyweds, who discover that marriage isn't all that easy. They both come from families who have totally different ideas of what life is like and how they incorporate that into their marriage. Everyone who is married or thinking about it should read this! It's almost a learning experience!
It's also for anyone who adores Southern fiction. Clyde Edgerton has a way of creating the most intriguing characters from sleepy towns in the South. You begin to realize that there's more life in those towns than you ever thought! Katherine Clarke
