Addie Caswell finds herself in a precarious position in the turn-of-the-twentieth century South, especially for a young girl from a religious, proud family. Addie falls in love with a traveling Church of Christ salesman, much to the disapproval of her stern, Methodist father. Defying her father in the face of estrangement, she marries Zeb, only to be betrayed by his subsequent infidelities. Alone but determined, Addie must find redemption as she comes to terms with her faith and the healing power of family and relationships.

*Starred Review* Lemmons' Sunday Clothes is set at the turn of the twentieth century in eastern Tennessee. Young Addie Caswell is in love with a smooth-talking insurance salesman, Zeb, but she cannot gain Jacob's--her widower father's--approval to marry him. Zeb's a Campbellite, or member of the Church of Christ, and Jacob is a Methodist. Jacob claims that Campbellites are too literal-minded even to talk to, though of course he's equally muleheaded. In despair, Addie defies her father and marries Zeb, but then Zeb turns out to have an appetite for other women. Maybe that shy young Methodist that Jacob was trying to marry her to wasn't such a bad choice after all, but in any case Lemmons does a fine job bringing to life denominational wars. In the bargain, he tells the story of Chattanooga, where Cherokee and Coca-Cola lores blend colorfully. John Mort
