When you get six Southern women together, there's bound to be some great storytelling going on. And that's exactly what you get when you read the wonderful stories found in 'Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes,' the collection of short stories from six renown Southern authors. With an invitation for their readers to come sit on the porch a spell, award-winning authors Donna Ball, Sandra Chastain, Debra Dixon, Viriginia Ellis, Nancy Knight and Deborah Smith have come together to create a delightfully humorous collection of nostaglic tales that will transport you straight back to the land of warm, peach-scented breezes. Reared in Mississippi, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee, these six 'Daughters of the South' have joined together in a partnership to create Belle Books, the publisher of 'Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes.' With the goal of showcasing the rich storytelling traditions of southern women, they plan to acquire novels and story collections that convey their message. 'Sweet Tea and Jesus Shoes,' which will be released in May, will be the first of what promises to be many wonderful books to come from this admirable company. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be glad you picked up this unforgettable collection of life lessons, as seen through Southern eyes. So I lift my glass of good ol' sweet tea and give praise to the gracious ladies of Belle Books. Sisters, you've done us all proud.

They are true daughters of the South, born storytellers who have created some of the finest romances the world has ever seen. These six authors have formed their own company, BelleBooks, so they can creatively tell tales from the modern world of the South without Manhattan or Toronto changing them. This move is similar to the creators of Image Comics break away from Marvel years ago.

There are sixteen tales in this excellent collection written by some of the greats. Sandra Chastain, Deborah Smith, Donna Ball, Virginia Ellis, Deborah Dixon, and Nancy Knight are all known and loved for their works. This book will enhance the high esteem fans have for these authors and will also result in them capturing the mainstream reader. The stories are poignant and heartwarming as they capture the essence of the south. This is a brilliant compilation of southern women's stories in the tradition of Anne Rivers Siddons.
