I expected this book to be better than it was. It turns out that the author is probably in her late 30;s or early 40's and has young children at home. Somehow I thought the aging gracefully would be about a different, earlier era. Mine. It is amusing but the joke gets old pretty quickly and the rest is repetitious. There are better books on Southern women. I'll have to think of them. Oh I know - one of them is titled "We're Just Like you, Only Better." Love the thought.
