SOUTHERN CHARM SERVED UP WITH WARMTH….

Author Olivia deBelle Byrd’s page-turning series of anecdotes about Southern life had me chuckling from start to finish.

In the very first chapter, we discover how the book title came into being; in a chapter on Southern Grandmothers, we learn about the highlight of the day: watching “As the World Turns,” and carrying on conversations with the characters on the screen; in still another chapter, we learn the importance of manners; and in another one, we learn all about hair obsessions. Every chapter delivered up something that the reader could relate to in some way, no matter where she grew up.

Each of the book’s short chapters was to the point and reminded me of incidents in my own life, and I didn’t even grow up in the South. But I suspect that since many of my relatives came from Missouri, there was a part of that heritage woven into the fabric of their lives, and therefore, passed down to me.

Miss Hildreth Wore Brown: Anecdotes of a Southern Belle is a funny, delightful, and unforgettable tale that reminds me of all of life’s best moments, most embarrassing incidents, or favorite chats with a best friend. Five stars.
