   Liane Moriarty Meets Kathryn Stockett
The Wives Tobacco is a gem of a novel that doesn't quite do it justice, but it is a good place to start. The Tobacco Wives introduces readers to the Mad Men-esque exploits of midcentury tobacco advertising and the family history that inspired the story in the author's note. I recommend you delay no further and read the debut novel of the author, because I devoured it in the course of a weekend. It's easy to imagine The Tobacco Wives being adapted for film or TV. If you read it first, you will be a hit at your next book club.

   Wonderful Story
The Tobacco Wives was an engaging read that brought to life a period of time that kept women in their place and in a region that depended on the harvesting of a product that was heralded. The hero of the story is a young woman who learns about the real world and develops into a confident woman with a strong moral compass. The author builds a well-rounded character that draws you into the personal story and her professional ambition. This would make a great movie.

   An enchanting read!
I love this book. It's full of vivid descriptions that quickly immerse the reader in the action and dramas of the North Carolina social scene. It's a perfect read for women's history month. Absolutely cannot recommend this enough.

   Compelling Story + Great Depth of Time, Place, and Characters!
I liked this book. I hid quiet moments so I could read it. The author gave a lot of depth to the place, the time, and the characters in her story. It was easy to become immersed in her descriptions. It was fun to read about the dresses of the 1940s and the influence of the tobacco industry. I would recommend this book to friends.

   Wonderful writing, bright future ahead for Adele Myers!
I loved this book as a child, because my mother owned two tobacco allotments that provided funding for our Christmas gifts from Santa Claus. There is a new writer and a wonderful female hero. I hope she writes more books.

   Va va voom! A beautiful and powerful coming of age story
It was great! The kind of book I wanted to read this weekend. It used tobacco, advertising, and the power of women. I loved the way the book dove into the tobacco ads from the time period and even included an advertising plan in the story. The underlying message about a young woman finding her voice and speaking up at a time and place where women were to be only seen and not heard was empowering. The female cast of Big Little Lies should be called The Tobacco Wives with Reese Witherspoon in it. There is hope that this story becomes a film. Can't wait to see what this author comes up with next.

   Historical fiction in a time when women had little voice and tobacco was king
When I was growing up in the south after WWII, there wasn't much for women to be proud of. That is where you will meet her. A teen in a southern town with tobacco at it's heart is a bold, talented and scrappy young woman. As you enter tobacco country, the characters in this book will charm and disgust you. The early days of tobacco's success can be seen in The Tobacco Wives. It is worth seeing.
