Warm and sweet as drizzled honey on a homemade Mississippi biscuit, My Magnolia Memories and Musings lingers in the reader’s mind long after the last page is turned. In its pages, I found so many similarities with my own life that I identified with the author herself. This is a rare appeal.

I was given an opportunity to review two books of poetry by an author from my home state of Mississippi.

Beautiful book of poetry that takes me home to my Mississippi roots. Her stories thru poetry remind me of food, family, friends and the nature of MS. It is a book that I can read when I want to relax and escape. I highly recommend to own a copy or give as a gift.
