“A treat to be savored.”

Houston Chronicle


A classic from New York Times bestselling author Anne Rivers Siddons, Nora, Nora tells the story of free-thinking Cousin Nora Findlay who turns tiny Lytton, Georgia, on its ear in the summer of 1961. Pat Conroy (The Prince of Tides) says the author of Low Country, Up Island, Peachtree Street, and King’s Oak “ranks among the best of us,” and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution praises Nora, Nora as “Anne Rivers Siddons writing at the top of her form. This lively, sparkling coming-of-age novel is superbly written and wholly engaging.”

Drastic changes are in store when her cousin Nora arrives driving a ''vagina pink'' convertible (obviously, Nora will administer to Peyton and the Lyttonites a much-needed lesson in unladylike behavior).
