Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind by Ann B. Ross

When I got this from the library and started to read it, I was wondering when this book took place because of the cover and the first couple of chapters. The book was published originally in 1990. Why do large type books always have different covers?  This was the first available copy sent to me from the library catalog.

I found these other covers.....

Miss Julia is a widow living in North Carolina. Her husband of 44 years, Wesley Lloyd, has passed recently.  A woman comes by her house and drops off her 9 year old son and tells her that Wesley Lloyd is the father of her child.  Now Miss Julia realizes what has been happening on Thursday nights in her husband's life! Hazel wants to go to beauty school in Raleigh for a few months.  She jumps into a car and is driven off.  Miss Julia is stunned and does not know what to do. A bunch of things happen and it turns out that Hazel is kidnapped, then Lloyd Junior. Miss Julia and her friends figure out who and what is going on and save the day and everyone!
