A Southern Girl has everything to love in a book: passion, intrigue, beautiful settings, and characters you would like to have a drink with as well as ones into whose face you would like to toss that drink. John Warley makes the reader feel like a member of the club as he exposes prejudice and intolerance from the inside of Southern gentry. From tree-lined boulevards and luxurious homes in South Carolina and verdant gardens of colonial Mexico, to a modern city in South Korea and haunting country-side tunnels in Vietnam, tears of happiness, indignation, sadness, and triumph surface as the story of this Southern girl and her family unfolds.

Great Beach Read - I took this book with me to Atlantic Beach, North Carolina and finished it in two days. It might have made me a little anti-social but the story was so engaging and the book was so well-written that it was worth it. For those who have lived in the South, you will recognize many of the characters and attitudes. If you have not had the pleasure of spending time in the South, this books serves as a unique introduction. I hoghly recommend this book!

"A Southern Girl" lacks an important part - the girl. This story of the adoption of a Korea girl into a family with deep ties to the deep South doesn't deliver any punch. The first part, in Korea and the US, is interesting, but then the author skips the girl's childhood altogether. Suddenly, she's 17 and the most important thing is to get her into a ball that won't event allow children of divorce. Semi-autobiographical, the story turns completely to the father and the author misses a chance to show how prejudice can be overcome. Apparently, it cannot. Lots of description of Charleston in here, but little substance.
