For the ladies of Chinquapin Parish in northwest Louisiana, Truvy’s Beauty Spot is more than place to get a perm. It’s the spot where they untangle the threads and knots that bind their lives together. Shelby struggles with disease while Clairee builds a friendship with grouchy Ouise. Annelle transforms from a shy new transplant to a party girl then swings back to find the Lord with a vengeance. Meanwhile, Truvy has the ups and downs of the men in her family.
