The bestselling author of American Housewife is back with a fiercely funny collection of essays on marriage and manners, thank-you notes and three-ways, ghosts, gunshots, gynecology, and the Calgon-scented, onion-dipped, monogrammed art of living as a Southern Lady.
Oh the life of a Southern Lady. I can tell you it is not easy. And this funny book of short essays gives those uninitiated in the ways of being a Southern Lady a good look at how it is done.
Ms. Ellis holds back nothing on the topics we all must deal with. How to be a Southern Lady in a time and place where people just don’t know about such things as the thank-you note rules, ghostly happenings, shooting guns and my favorite, monogramming!
We have a saying in our family. If it sits still long enough Momma will monogram it. There are rules. And I for one am happy that the author is fighting the good fight among the Yankees. Keep up the good work and thanks for the laughs and memories! There was not a single story I didn’t identify with!
