The Book: Give a Cup of Water, by Barbara Brannon
The Blurb: The citizens of Claxton, Texas, are justifiably possessed with a healthy thirst — on the dusty plains of West Texas, they’re in the midst of a seven-year drought when the town finally votes to go wet. The opposition faction, and its leader, Miss Jessica Cater, manage to shut down the promotion beer-store owner Buck Turlock has cooked up just in time for the Fourth of July celebration. But will Buck’s schemes lead Miss Jessie to rethink her position?
The Babble: When in the midst of a drought, the tiny town of Claxton, Texas votes to go wet, battle lines are drawn sure and true. In this comic short-story, author Barbara Brannon takes us back to the Claxton we’re beginning to know and love from her and co-writer Kay Ellington’s Paragraph Ranch series. Ms. Brannon’s characters are recognizable in our own hometowns, as are the predicaments these neighbors find themselves in. I smiled throughout this little book and can’t wait to visit Claxton again.
