The Banty House Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A homeless young woman finds an unexpected family in beloved New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown's novel of healing hearts and new beginnings in a small Texas town.
In the fading town of Rooster, Texas, all that's really left is a service station, a church…and the Banty House, a long-ago Depression-era brothel. For more than seventy-five years, Betsy, Connie, and Kate Carson have called their mama's house a home. The three eccentric sisters get by just fine with their homemade jams and jellies, a little moonshine on the side, and big hearts always open to strangers. Like Ginger Andrews.
An abandoned teen with a baby on the way and nowhere to go, she's given a room to call her own for as long as she wants. The kind invitation is made all the sweeter when Ginger meets the sisters' young handyman, Sloan Baker. But with a past as broken as Ginger's, he's vowed never to get close to anyone again. As a season of change unfolds, Ginger and Sloan might discover a warm haven to heal in the Banty House, a place to finally belong, where hope and dreams never fade.

Made me want to go and visit these people and get to know them.
Thank you once again Carolyn Brown.
But oh dear oh dear oh dear. What a missed opportunity. It was frankly dire. I had figured out the ending somewhere in Chapter 2. The rest of it was just tedious domesticity and wholly unbelievable relationships. The characters all spoke with the exactly same sweet winsome voice, and there was no character development at all, other than their various preferences for cooking, distilling moonshine or smoking weed. None of them seemed to have any greater emotional baggage than someone who had mislaid their second favourite pair of gloves. Sloan pursued his mission with no greater emotional commitment than half-heartedly looking for said item.
Most of the few plot developments were desperately contrived and handled with no tension or reality whatsoever. The episode where Sloan saved the day in the hosptial was jaw droppingly bad and took contrivance to new levels, and I can't believe anyone in fear of being blown to bits would be standing around batting their eyelids at the hero while he saved the day. If only all ex-servicement could recover from PTSD so easily with a bit of flirting with a young girl and a couple of conversations with relatives of the departed who just happened to be at the gravesides the days that he visited (quelle surprise!).
Honestly, this is one of the lamest books I've read in years, and it was virtually drowning in syrup. I was skim reading after the first third, and by the last third I was just reading the first and last sentences in each chapter and the odd few lines in between just to see if I was right about the ending. (I was.) If this was cast for a movie, Rock Hudson and Doris Day would be an absolute shoe-in. But we're not in the 1950s any more, and literature has thankfully moved on. There's feel good happy ever after family dramas and there's just lazy Mills and Boon standard pulp. This is the latter.
they would be my friends too if we had ever met.
Ginger is such a sweetheart and gives them the joy of a younger family member they never imagined could be possible.
I'm going to buy my next Carolyn. Brown book right now
