A heartwarming story of a Mom's day to day life and how she deals with her Mother's death. Delia is given a stack of letters written to her from her Mother. The letters are given to her years after her Mother's death. These letters give Delia an insight into the life and death of her precious Mother.
While reading this story, I laughed and I cried. What a special story! I highly recommend reading this story, just be sure to bring the tissues.

Fun and real... in some ways, it read more like a copy of my journal than a novel—but in a very good way. I could see myself in the main character and connect to her struggles. Her "confessions" rang true, the characters were complex and believable, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It's one of those rare novels that manages to teach you something about yourself... you will be glad you read it.

Delia Gray and Dixie Boon are the best of friends. Delia Gray and Joanna Fripp are the best of frenemies. Except Delia and Joanna's kids are friends, well kind of. Delia has three kids, a full-time job, and not many organizational skills. She's southern and hysterical to read about. If your looking for a fresh new voice and a laugh while you cry story, grab Confessions of a Crispy Mom today.
