I loved this collection of short stories. So many of the characters in these stories reminded me of people in my family. Lucille in "Hair Today Gone Tomorrow" is so like my husbands grandmother in that she knows everyone and all their "people" and could give you a geneology lesson on every family in three counties. And in "The Sunday Dress", the story of the class reunion is so spot on; the description of the families bringing the graduates to the reunion outnumbering the graduates is exactly wh ...more

Great collection of southern short stories
A wonderful collection of stories that makes you look at that old blue haired lady at church just a little differently. Each short story gives a clear window into what a charming and devious world the 'old' South really was.

As is no surprise, food plays a great role in many of these tales and the very best part may in fact be the inclusion of all the recipes mentioned. I can not wait to make some divinity candy, vinegar pie and just maybe try my hand at some real southern biscuits. What a wonde
I'm not a huge short story fan, I just got this because it had a story by Sarah Addison Allen and I've read all her novels already.

I was pleasantly surprised by the reading though. Most of the stories were actually pretty entertaining and it was fun to just catch a glimpse of each character's life, so none of it was too wordy. There were also some southern recipes at the back that I'm going to try.
Enjoyed the many stores that are in the book.Wonderful Enjoyed this book very much.Wonderful stories if you like the old south charm. If you enjoy this you have to read her other book Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes. Wonderful stories written by Southern Women. Will remind you of Chicken Soup For the Soul. Also encludes family recipes that are in the stories.
some of the stories are alright, some seem to be half baked high school attempts, some seem to have been written by people I wouldn't trust to pour pee out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

It seems as if I'm alone in this assessment.
I actually didn't finished the book. I got bored with it. It's very rare that I don't finish a book once I start it. At the most maybe only twice have I quit a book.

I absolutely love some of Deborah Smith's books. This collection was... meh. Deborah's story was better than the others, but not great.
