Publisher Comments:

<P>A sizzling, smart, and utterly engaging novel about sex, love, folklore, and family history from the author of <I>Redemption Song</I> and<I> The Haunting of Hip Hop.</I></P><P>Told from wisdom's perspective, <I>Jim and Louella's Homemade Heart-Fix Remedy</I> knocks down fear and shame with truth so that love will be manifested. With help from the deceased matriarchs in her life&#8212;her mother, Aunt T, and Grandma Sadie, Louella heals her marriage to Jim with one basic recipe for love. After resurrecting their love lost in between twenty-six years of marriage, Jim and Louella Johnson, suddenly begin to tap into their intuitive powers, uncontrollably reading the minds and seeing the souls of their community members and neighbors, and become overwhelmed with the desire to spread their love.</P><P> Jim and Louella's love becomes so infectious that many others in their southern town of Savannah crave it. Despite the heartache that so much knowledge can bring, they eagerly share their gifts and manage to awaken a loving heart in the mean town librarian, bring forgiveness to Mr. Blue, a child abuser who was abused himself as a child, teach self-love to a former prostitute, and pave the way down love's highway for so many others. Jim and Louella illuminate so much love throughout their small town that people flock to Jim and Louella's door for more lessons on loving.</P><P>Through it all, readers will see how marvelously Berry creates the rekindled love between an older couple and uses it as a springboard by which we watch them become catalysts for the healing of hearts in their southern town. Come aboard and take an adventurous ride of truth with love as the destination.</P>
