My Magnolia Memories and Musings - Book Review

 book review

"If you have never been to the true south. The south where respect is shown with Sir and Maam by young and old.  Where the life is laid back and the living is easy, where you don't have to know someone to wave to them then you need to read the latest release My Magnolia Memories and Musings by Patricia Neely- Dorsey.
Ms. Dorsey is a native southerner. Being southern is not learned it is bred
and she is a true bred southerner.

She takes the reader down country roads, in country churches, around supper tables, the cotillions which were a girls coming out party and last but not least she show the reader the true Steel Magnolias. The southern women who have a iron fist in a velvet glove.

As I read her poems it took me back to a simpler time when doors were left unlocked and people sat on the front porch and waved to passersby. To warm summer nights and sweet ice tea.

As a true southern girl I miss my southern state. I miss the slow talk the slow walk
and the easy living.
  This book gets five stars only because I can't give
it any more, because there are no more"
