DELLA AND DARBY: A NOVEL OF SISTERS
SOUTHERN FICTION | CONTEMPORARY FICTION
Known for her humor and genuine Southern voice, Susannah B. Lewis brings readers the heartwarming story of two sisters learning to love who they are and face the world—alongside their charming, wise grandmother.
Della and Darby Redd are twins, but they couldn’t be more different. Della is outspoken and eccentric, and Darby is introverted and avoids conversation when possible. As they approach their 30th birthday, they’re single and living with their grandmother, Birdie. Della wants nothing more than to find love and be accepted by her former schoolmates in Clay Station, Mississippi, but Darby couldn’t care less. She is content coming home from her factory job each day to curl up on the couch and watch Murder, She Wrote with Birdie and write poems in her journal.
Della falls in love with her boss, Dr. Brian Faulkner, and Darby finds unexpected friendship in her goofy coworker, Cliff Waters. Because of her friendship with Cliff, Darby uncovers terrible truths about Della’s crush. Will Dr. Brian Faulkner’s secrets push the different sisters even further apart or bring them closer together? The sisters will both need to face difficult questions about who they are . . . and who they want to be.
"Della and Darby had me hooked from beginning with the sisterly relationship and humor that only Susannah Lewis can produce."
- Goodreads Review
“Lewis’s heartwarming latest follows twin sisters as they attempt to find themselves and overcome the past in their stiflingly small Mississippi hometown . . . Lewis captures the vulnerability and humor of their relationship. This light jaunt has surprising emotional depth.”
"There are many unanticipated situations, even a bit of romance in this unpredictable, heartfelt, beautiful story. The characters are so well developed it was easy to forget they aren't real."
