A very Southern mother-in-law's humorous advice to mothers-in-law everywhere.

From the multiple New York Times best-selling author of The Red Hat Club. Best-selling author Haywood Smith and her pals have lots of personal experience in the joys, sorrows, pitfalls and flat-out hysteria of Mother-in-Lawness. Now Smith offers a handy and fun booklet of pithy advice to mothers-in-law everywhere.

Smith's sassy observations and gentle wisdom are delivered with her trademark southern charm, packing the sweet, heady punch of bourbon ice cubes melting in a mint julep.

The Twelve Sacred Traditions of Magnificent Mothers-in-Law is the perfect gift book for showers, engagement parties, family celebrations or just to share with that special DIL (Daughter-in-Law) or SIL (Son-in-Law). It can even safely be given to a Mother-in-Law.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this short book. It shed a lot of light into how I want to be as a MIL and why my MIL fails on so many levels. It encouraged me in my belief that I CAN be a good MIL in the future, that the role of "MIL" doesn't have to be negative. The book was funny, at times, too. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 2/20/2014

    " This quick little read is a reminder of the importance of the "in-law" relationships, as well as the one with your child. It is very humorous and fun, but nothing but truthful, which can be a little painful at times when being made aware of past mistakes. The quotes from Grandma Bess are worth the price of admission! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda | 2/18/2014

    " This book was a quick read. It used humor to confront the challenges of being a mother-in-law. I will be making some changes in how I view and approach my relationships with my daughter-in-laws. I am glad that I read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Issa | 1/18/2014

    " Cute, funny freebie :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimi | 1/12/2014

    " A very quick read but good life lessons to remember as children become young adults-- "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/7/2014

    " Kind of silly & short, but if you follow the basic rules you can't go wrong. As a fairly new MIL I plan on following the 12 rules. My own magnificent MIL tended to break them all, ha ha!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbi | 1/3/2014

    " I got this as a free download on my Kindle. I read it knowing that two people who are very dear to me are new MIL's. The book was full of common sense and I don't think there were any surprises. It did make me think of my own MIL and how well she fit the "magnificent" label. (And I know that she didn't have a handbook!) I was hoping that this book would have a little "lighter" feel -- I had expected MORE self-deprecating humor. Regardless, it was an extremely QUICK read (it is only about 100 pages) and may be a good reference in the DISTANT future! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosalie | 1/3/2014

    " A must read for all Mother-In-Laws. I will read it again and again until I actually do all of things in it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 12/31/2013

    " Fun guide book for relationships. Loaded with heavy southern honesty and charm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Season Keiffer | 12/26/2013

    " funny, light ~ hearted read. It did have some great points in it, I hope I remember them if I am ever a Mother in Law. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 12/24/2013

    " Brief, humorous booklet. The advice pretty self-evident but nicely worded/presented. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/23/2013

    " Entertaining reading with good common sense advice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 12/17/2013

    " Good solid advice. My own, truly magnificent mother in law, could have written this book - she certainly put into practice all the advice given here. As does my own mother, in her relationships with her sons and daughters in law. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 12/16/2013

    " Lately I've had several friends mention how hard it is to have good relationships with their daughters-in-law. Having two married children myself I thought this was a WONDERFUL and fun book to read. It's quite a "fast read" and had some very good points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 12/6/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirah W | 11/14/2012

    " Thank goodness for a wonderful mother-in-law. Short and sweet, this book highlights the basic dos and don'ts of being a good mother-in-law, things that should be obvious but seem to somehow get forgotten. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol Ann | 8/25/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deb | 5/22/2012

    " This is a common sense approach to treating your sons and daughters and their mates with respect and dignity. In fact, this advice is applicable to any relationship with family or friends. I like it. "
