Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems  - Link to Amazon

Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems is a true celebration of the south and things southern. The author states, "There are so many negative connotations associated with Mississippi and the south in general. In my book, using childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I attempt to give a positive glimpse into the southern way of life." The book has been called, among other things, a poetic love letter to the south and a poetic autobiography. The author invites readers to Meet Mississippi Through Poetry Prose and The Written Word.

In Magnolia Memories and Musings, Patricia Neely-Dorsey continues to "Celebrate the South and Things Southern". Her first collection of poems, Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia was called by one reviewer, a "love letter to the South". With Magnolia Memories and Musings, the love affair continues. Using personal thoughts, observations, and childhood memories, the author attempts to give a up-close and positive view into the southern way of life.
