Review: I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! This book warmed my heart and made me feel right at home. As being a South Carolinian and a Southern Belle this book was a breath of fresh air. I felt like I could relate to so much in this charming story. This book really shows society status and how different living in the southeast can be. I highly recommend this book if your looking for something light and sweet as tea!
