Come sit on the porch a spell. Let's talk about times gone by and folks we remember, about slow summer evenings and lightning bugs in a jar. Listen to the music of a creaky swing and hand-cranked ice cream and cicadas chorusing in the sultry night air. Let's talk about how things used to be in the South - and for some of us, they way they still are.

Welcome to the world of Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes, where award winning authors Deborah Smith, Sandra Chastain, Virginia Ellis, Debra Dixon, Donna Ball and Nancy Knight come together for the first time to create this poignant, humorous collection of nostalgic tales. Here life's lessons are handed down - liberally sprinkled with hilarity - from eccentric relatives, outrageous pets and unrepentant neighbors, and served up with a generous dollop of that most valued of all Southern commodities: good old fashioned storytelling. From Mississippi to Georgia, from Florida to Tennessee, these daughters of the South will take you on a lush tour of the times and places they know best, each voice as refreshing and inviting as a glass of cold sweet tea on a hot afternoon.

So come. Let us take you back. Let us take you home.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/27/2014

    " I love Henry James short stories, but they are a couple hundred pages. These stories were far too short for me to get into, and it was hard for me to see a point to them. I read them all, but even a day later I do not remember even a single story in the book that I read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betsy | 9/23/2013

    " I don't really recommend this book. The stories are cute, but they are a little cheesy. Also, this book apparently was not edited or spell-checked during the publication process. Of course that bothers me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eldon | 8/7/2013

    " Sixteen short stories with a delicious Southern flavor and a selection of recipes at the end. A good book for Southerners to reminisce and a delightful way for Northerners to "get a clue." "
