Miss Hildreth Wore Brown – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
‘I woke up the other morning, took one look in the mirror, and went and
called my children. “You have to get married. My face is falling.
People are going to think I’m the grandmother of the bride/groom instead
of the mother, for Pete’s sake! Do you really want me walking down the aisle
on a walker with oxygen attached?” The last time my son had a
girlfriend and met her mother, the first words out of my mouth were,
“How old does she look?” Not, is she a nice person or even is she
sane? The other day a friend asked me if my son was dating anyone
special. “No,” I replied, “but I’m down to anyone who’s not a hooker.”
One friend inquired about recovering hookers. I told her I’d have to
get back to her on that one. But giving it some thought, people deserve
a second chance, don’t you think?’
This is just the beginning of Olivia deBelle Byrd’s feelings on “Weddings” and just the beginning of many other Anecdotes of a Southern Belle. I’ve had good laughs over her feelings about Victoria’s Secret, Robert Redford, Christmas Sweaters and New Neighbors, just to name a few. With both
of us coming from the South, I can even relate to what she has to say
about most of her topics. And if you aren’t from the South then I
suggest you read Miss Hildreth Wore Brown very carefully so you will
acquire a real understanding for our way of thinking. This book will
keep you laughing from beginning to end.
I do want to add that I’ll have the pleasure of meeting Olivia deBelle
Byrd at a book signing coming up in October in Charlotte, NC. I can’t
wait to meet this funny lady face to face.
