The Ponder HeartBook - 2011
Delta Wedding : Set in 1923, it is an exquisitely woven story centered around the Fairchild family's preparations for a wedding at their Mississippi plantation. Drama leads to drama, revelation to revelation, and the result is a sometimes riotous portrait ofa large and clamorous Southern family. The Ponder Heart : a comic masterpiece, Miss Edna Earle Ponder, one of the few living members of a once prominent family, tells a traveling salesman the history of her family and fellow townsfolk.
