Not just for Yankees
It's a great fish-out-of-water story about a young Yankee woman's experiences living in the South. As a Yankee myself, I found it easy to identify with the writer, and her descriptions of the people she meets and unexpected things that happen in her life there. She manages to keep her sense of humor no matter what. She clearly learns to love her new home, quirks and all. I thought it was a very positive look at culture differences.
The chapter in which the writer deals with bugs is memorable. She dealt with the problem with a lot of thought and fortitude.
The narration is wonderful, very pleasant to listen to. The narrator's voice enhances the book, and doesn't get in the way of the story.
