Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes is a charming collection of stories that range from sweetly sentimental tearjerkers to laugh out loud funny slice-of-life tales. And, best of all, there isn't a dud in the entire bunch. All of the stories were obviously written with love and each is an author's memory of living in the South. The book is broken up into three sections titled: Precious Memories, Family Portraits (wow, do these ladies have some nutty relatives and neighbors!) and Beloved Critters. Being an animal lover the "Beloved Critters" section contained some of my favorite stories in the collection. The hands down winner for me was Donna Ball's UP JUMPS THE DEVIL. It's about a big, slobbering, affectionate dog that sends an entire town into an uproar and gives one grasping old bitty her comeuppance. This story had me in stitches and will be reread whenever I'm in dire need of a good laugh. The book is a little pricey, at $14.95 for only 171 pages of storytelling, but I feel its stories are worth splurging on (or saving for).

This is a collection of short southern stories and their are recipes at the end of the book. I especially liked a few of these stories. I will be looking for more of these authors works.

A wonderful book for anyone from the South (or anyone who wishes they were)!

This book is a collection of stories, some fiction and some non-fiction, all about growing up in the South. If you fondly remember Vacation Bible School, drink sweet tea by the gallon (as we do here in my house), or have ever been to a Souther funeral, you will adore this book!!!

If you grew up Southern you need to read these stories. And learn how to make real Banana Pudding.

Sweet Book, being southern will make you go "aha" not being southern will give you a little insight to those of us below the Mason Dixon line.
