I absolutely loved this book and can't recommend it highly enough. Unlike most of the current "Southern Belle" books, this one shows a darker side. It took me by surprise and made a deep impression, especially since all of the stories are based on true incidents.

I found it interesting to get into Pamela's head and see how each character and their story was born. It made the characters and their stories very real to me. The stories are very unique. These are not all feel good, sugary stories.
These Southern Fried Women have not had easy lives. They are tough women battling problems some of us can only imagine. In the end, they overcome and stand tall. Some of these stories are dark and disturbing as Pamela even warns us about in the introduction to one such story, Old Time Religion. I found myself gasping and thinking about many of these stories long after I read them.
On the flip side, some of the characters had me laughing out loud at their thoughts and antics. I highly recommend this book of short stories. Pamela King Cable is a wonderfully gifted storyteller! I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

It begins with "Southern Fried Women," which was one of my favorites. Cable showcases the South in honesty and realism and for characterization, you'll stumble upon a few swear words, but some stories have none. If you like Southern reads with real Southern flavor, she delivers a book you won't be able to put down. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to do anything else but finish it.
