Strong Women & Sweet Tea: Books of the South

"A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water."

Even though I didn’t grow up there, and have only visited sporadically, I still find myself completely transported by books that are set in the American South. I tend to choose ones that have characters with strong personalities that won’t be easily forgotten.

My recommendation is to enjoy any one of these books on a porch with a cold glass of sweet tea. I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon.
