Short synopsis from Goodreads:
With storytelling written in the finest Southern tradition from the soap operas of Chandler Street in the quaint town of Gainesville, Georgia, to a country store on the Alabama state line, Olivia deBelle Byrd delves with wit and amusement into the world of the Deep South with all its unique idiosyncrasies and colloquialisms.
My Thoughts: This book was a fun way to spend a few hours. I loved the author's voice and I could almost imagine it inside my head. The story behind the title of the book was very funny! Miss Hildreth was buried in a brown suit and the horror of it all was that the color just didn't do her dead body justice! Could you imagine talking about that at someone's funeral??? This book had me laughing off and on, and smiling most of the time I was reading it. I'm not sure if the author will like this or not but my favorite "character" in her book was her HUSBAND!! He's a riot and I loved his sense of humor.
Recommend? Yes, I do. This is just a fun way to experience the customs and rituals of Southern women. I believe we really do have a lot in common, probably more than we think!
