I'm so looking forward to reading your book, Valerie! I love stories about who endured hard things, the relationships they built, and all things Southern! Thank you for sharing your memories and your post. You have been so blessed to have a storytelling family!

Carol Alscheff

I subscribed. The book sounds very interesting.


Thank you so much, Cathy! And thanks to the blog tour, I have big "must read" list from y'all! Love these stories you're telling.


Thank you for subscribing, Carol!

This sounds like a wonderful book. I hope to read it soon.


Thank you so much, Violetta! I hope you enjoy it.

To answer Valerie Luesse's question: Si Chandler built two things across from the grand old house: a skating rink and a man-made lake. Thanks for the opportunity to enter a wonderful giveaway! Would love to win print books! Lual Krautter, 712 Carter St., Deer Lodge, MT 59722 [email protected]

As a fellow Alabamian I'm very interested in the state's history during WWII. Most of the books written during this time period are set in Europe so this will be an interesting read. Reading a book set in your home always feels like a more personal experience.

Lisa Hudson

I subscribed to your newsletter & blog. This book sounds fantastic! Being a MS Girl, this certainly sounds like HOME to me! When I was growing up, I loved nothing more than when my Uncle & Aunt from Mobile came to town to see us. I would always beg them to tell their “old timey” stories. My Daddy was the oldest & my Uncle was the 2nd of 8 children. They were more alike than any of the others. Daddy just turned 94 on 06/03 & my Aunt is probably 87 or so. (Mom & my Uncle have stepped into the arms of Jesus.) When we all get to visit, we, along with the generations following, still love to hear & laugh at their beautiful stories!

Perrianne Askew

I subscribed to your newsletter and am truly looking forward to reading your book.


Thanks so much, Perrianne!


Great to hear from you, Lisa! There's a Mississippi man in my book. His name is Joe Dolphus, and he has that wry MS wit that I love so much. My husband and I traveled the Delta together and hope to retire in Ocean Springs. Let me know what you think!


Thank you, Lucy!


Thanks so much, Brenda!

Jessica Alvarado
