Nonny Frett understands the meanings of “rock” and “hard place” better than any woman ever born. She’s got two mothers, “one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy.” She’s got two men: her husband, who’s easing out the back door; and her best friend, who’s laying siege to her heart in her front yard. She has a job that holds her in the city, and she’s addicted to a little girl who’s stuck deep in the country. To top it off, she has two families: the Fretts, who stole her and raised her right; and the Crabtrees, who lost her and can’t forget that they’ve been done wrong. In Between, Georgia, population ninety, a feud that began the night Nonny was born is escalating, and a random act of violence will set the torch to a thirty-year-old stash of highly flammable secrets. This might be just what the town needs, if only Nonny wasn’t sitting in the middle of it.

Quotes & Awards

  • “What is especially surprising is how skillfully Jackson manages the large array of divergent character voices, from the calm, matter-of-fact tones of Nonny’s adopted mother to the wild redneck sensibility of her biological grandmother. Particularly delicious is Jackson’s nasal, braying inflection to portray Nonny’s bossy and narrow-minded aunt Bernise…this is a delight from start to finish.”  

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jackson returns with a second quirky and touching novel abut the South…A climactic ending with perfect story resolution makes this book tidy and uplifting, and even the most cynical reader will surely smile as the back cover closes.” 


  • “Joshilyn Jackson is a storyteller whose clarity and elegant poetry are worthy of the tradition of our great Southern writers. The really big surprise is her reading. Jackson reads with energy, enthusiasm, and the finesse of an accomplished voice actor. Her artful characterizations draw listeners into Nonny’s world, filled with quirky, genuine, and original characters.” 


  • “After a great debut with Gods in Alabama, Jackson’s follow-up poses the same dilemma for readers: you can’t wait to finish it but don’t want it to end.” 

    Library Journal

  • “Every now and then a remarkable writer, following in the footsteps of great authors, comes along to re-energize American fiction. So it is with Joshilyn Jackson…Between, Georgia is an exemplary novel by a singular writer who is in full command of the art of storytelling. Paradoxically, the story simultaneously overflows with gut-wrenching sadness and laugh-out-loud humor. Jackson’s novel brilliantly explores abstractions redemption, love and grace through the most compelling characterizations to be found in contemporary fiction. Don’t miss it!”

    " I just finished this book last night and it was so good! I already read this author's book, Gods in Alabama (which is also good) and this one just jumped out at me. If you like southern stories with strong female characters, this is a great choice! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Raina | 2/1/2014

    " 3 1/2 star worthy. Good with very eccentric, interesting characters and a powerful explosion of events at the end. Nicely wrapped up. "

    " Another great southern story of a family of strong women who will sacrifice all and defend all that is theirs regardless of the cost. Great characters that you just fall in love with! "
