Cold Sassy Tree, Olive Ann  Burns unforgettable story of a Georgia town at the  turn of the century, has captivated millions of  readers with its tale of Grandpa Blakeslee, his young  bride Miss Love, and the irrepressible  fiteen-year-old Will Tweedy. Throughout her long battle with  cancer, Olive Ann Burns worked passionately on a  sequel to this magical book. Only during her final  days did she realize she wouldn't complete it,  dictating from her hospital bed her wishes that the  finished chapters be published.

The result  is Leaving Cold Sassy - a  portait of the grown-up Will Tweedy; of the feisty  young schoolteacher who captures his heart; of the  town that has claimed a place in the American  imagination; and, in a fascinating reminiscence by her  editor, of Olive Ann Burns, a writer who didn't get  a chance to finish her extraordinary tale.

  Complete with Olive Ann Burn's notes for later  scenes and chapters exactly as she wrote them,  Leaving Cold Sassy is a final, loving  goodbye to Cold Sassy, Georgia.
