Handling Shit and Finding Love

In this excerpt from The Beak in the Heart: True Tales of Misfit Southern Women, Betina Entzminger tells the story of Louise and Ella, two of her “misfit” aunts who had the strength to handle the blows dealt to them by adversity, disappointment, and heartache in the South of the 1950s. This is a touching story about finding love, freedom, and fortitude.

The Beak in the Heart is a collection of dramatic portraits of the author’s “misfit” female ancestors and a candid, intimate memoir about family secrets and breaking free of the narrow confines of being a “proper” southern woman.
