This woman is a Southern woman. The customs, speech patterns and values are very small town Southern.
I love it. I grew up in Texas. And a good portion of what Ms Herlong describes are things very familiar.
She writes about life growing up in a small town atmosphere. Everyone knows everyone, and she was related to a good number of the neighbors. She loves the people and the place and the time. That love comes through to the reader.
We learn about her family and the things her Mother taught her. And the things that her second Mother, Tootie, taught her are included. And what she learned from competing for Miss America. She shares what she has learned giving inspirational talks to groups all over the south. From those groups she has gathered friends who appreciate what she says.
There is humor in her stories. She also tells us stories which illustrate Christian ethics. We are reminded how to treat one another and how to love one another. Even when someone is not lovable, we need to love them, for our own good.
In fact most of this book is about learning what is for our own good. We can find peace and happiness in the simple things. These are things like family and laughter and love.
The book is difficult to describe other than a memoir which brings the reader into warmth and comfort. Ms Herlong is aware of her strength and her weakness and she shares both with the reader.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants a read which is particularly good at Christmas time but would be entertaining at anytime.

From the Back Cover

Sweet Tea Secrets from the Deep Fried South

Before the South slips away right before my heavily-mascaraed-eyes that are coated with luscious-lash-enhancer, I must share a piece of my mind.

The South has been invaded, re-branded, reprimanded and ridiculed. We are good folk, but I am fully aware that there are some in our midst who 'need to be furloughed back to where they came. And don't you start gaspin' for air like some of our over-the-top church people ... you know who they are.

I am just going to put this right out there--if you are a born and bred Southerner, you will appreciate this book. If you moved here twenty-five years ago and think you are something of a southern soul, you may chuckle. If you fled some other part of the Union in hopes of enjoying our lower taxes, lax gun laws, long summer days, and slow way of living and talking, there is a good chance you might recognize your neighbors in this book. But if you still think we need to change, buy another book.

Many of us born and bred southerners hold on to our traditions like we grip Little Debbie cakes. We celebrate Southern-style until the last molecule of dirt is thrown on our face and our family and friends go to the church fellowship hall to talk about how much better we look dead than we ever did alive--all while eating potato salad.

I am fixin' to tell some stories. Stories that'll make you cry; tales that'll make you snort until RC Cola rushes from your nostrils. I am a South Carolinian and you can't get any more southern in the south than the southern part of the southeastern coast.

Come along and laugh with us as we attend family reunions that may become a dating service. I mean seriously, Ashley Wilkes married his cousin Melanie just cause she understood him. And don't lecture us when we drink our sweet diabetic tea or when we talk about our other favorite beverage ... gravy.

Story is how we speak in the South, so sit a spell and enjoy some Southern tales.
