"A delightful book of personal essays dedicated to delving into the mysteries of the modern Southern belle" (Janis Owens, author of My Brother Michael). 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. The characters who dance across the pages range from Great Aunt LottieMae, who is as "old-fashioned and opinionated as the day is long," to Mrs. Brewton, who calls everyone "dahling" whether they are darling or not, to Isabella with her penchant for mint juleps and drama. Humorous anecdotes from a Christmas coffee, where one can converse with a lady who has Christmas trees with blinking lights dangling from her ears, to Sunday church, where a mink coat is mistaken for possum, will delight Southerners and baffle many a non-Southerner. "Olivia deBelle Byrd proves that she is the real thing-an authentic Southern Belle with stories galore. I can't wait to give this hilarious and heartwarming book to all my sweet friends."-Cassandra King, author of The Same Sweet Girls "Miss Hildreth Wore Brown covers everything from Sunday church, beauty pageants and Northern exposure with humorous insight. This is one that you'll want to savor with a mint julep!" -Michael Morris, author of A Place Called Wiregrass
