About The Book

Pull up a chair by the window table at Big Earl's diner and meet the 'Supremes': three women from Indiana, who've been best friends since their high-school days in the Sixties.


There's Clarice, a pious wife and mother who does everything out of love and is struggling with her husband's infidelity; spirited Barbara Jean, who breaks all the rules and must confront the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair; and stubborn Odette, whose fearlessness has saved her friends many times, but who now faces a terrifying situation of her own . . .

Over iced tea and pecan pie, through forty years of marriage, children, happiness and the blues, facing challenges to their friendship through the turbulent civil rights movement and beyond, the inseparable trio take on the world together. A fantastic page-turner full of warmth and heart, and a beautiful ode to the power of friendship, THE SUPREMES AT EARL’S ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT is one of those rare books you’ll want to press on all your friends . . .
