Sapphire, Ruby and Other Southern Jewels
Rosyhill, Mississippi. On the surface: a quiet, quaint little town lucky enough to sit alongside the Mississippi River. Home to legendary moonshine maker, Rosy Cheeks Reynolds and the genteel, delicate flower of the South, Mary Elizabeth Mary Ann Peterson.
Delicate? Genteel? Fragile? Frail? Look again. These are real, down to earth women; Daughters of the Southland and worthy of the title, "Steel Magnolia." Of course, they are true ladies, demure and reserved. That is, until you get crossways with them. And then, all hell breaks loose, as the Carson family discovers when Ruby falls.
Altogether, a hilarious, whimsical journey into the deep Southland, where time stands still, southern culture and exquisite manners still exist, and the ladies, naturally, are immortal.
