    Strong Characterization

    In depth description of the daily life of a middle aged Southern widow struggling to make ends meet. Author's strong characterization makes you feel like Vernell is someone you know. However,I found the ending to be a little too "and they lived happily ever after" which detracted from the realism in the rest of the story.

    Fun read

    This is a light and fun read. Poor Vernell - trying her dangdest to stay afloat and just pay the rent. You can just "see" her characters as you read and find sympathy for this down on her luck generationed trailer park residant. But as she is a good person - luck does finally come to Vernell. Either that or she started playing country music backwards........

    This was a good story about a poor, middle-aged widow that is raising a grandchild and a child of her own. She lives in a mobile home and finds it had to make ends meet. People in that situation are usually stereotyped as 'trashy', but for the most part, they are just regular folks trying to make ends meet. The character of Vernell appealed to me and I would tend to want to meet her and be friends if she were real. There are people who live in ways, not of their choosing, who are still quality people, and I think the author captured this. I would like to read more of her stories.

    Very good short (96 page) story!

    I loved reading this! The story is really good and the ending was superb! I plan on buying "Southern Fried Women" because after reading this I want to read more stories like this.

    This short story is not a romance or a mystery; it is simply a story about life in the south.
