When Daisy left the razzle-dazzle of New York City to move to Mississippi, she took a huge leap of faith.

Daisy Karam-Read, an urbanite to the core, thrived on Manhattan's fast tempo and glamour, and never anticipated living in a sleepy southern town. Marriage to the southern gentleman of her dreams brought her abruptly to Mississippi, casting this international travel-loving Yankee into a cpmplex culture unlike anything she had ever known.
Could all the negative remarks, bad jokes, and insensitive comments Karem-Read had heard about the South -and Mississippi in particular- be true? Daisy takes the reader on an emotional and intellectual journey while uncovering many truths about an often misunderstood region. Her entertaining essays are a must-read for southerners and Yankees alike, perhaps an eye-opener for all Americans.
