  1. This sounds great, Eva! And I just finished "No Place for a Lady" from your bookshelf and thoroughly enjoyed it! :)

  2. I think I fell in love with you just reading this wonderful site! Of course, I mean that in the most respectful sense.

    You see, my mother was from Georgia. She married my Dad who was a Floridian. Plus my great-grandfather was a Confederate soldier who served defending Georgia. So I have a definite connection with your sentiments about the South. How refreshing!

    You have captured the gentility and warmth of being and living in the South. If I wasn't already a Southerner, I would definitely want to be one after reading your comments.

    Anyway, you might be curious to know how I found you. I am registered to attend the Florida Christian Writers Conference in March and I noticed you listed among the attendees.

    It would be a privilege to meet you there.
