God save the Sweet Potato Queensby Jill Conner Browne
Synopses & Reviews
Hallelujah The Sweet Potato Queens are back
In 1999, Jill Conner Browne, royal boss of Jackson, Mississippi's own glorious Sweet Potato Queens, introduced them to the world in the hilariousbestseller The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love (which contained everything you ever need to know about Love, Life, Men, Marriage, and the importance of Being Prepared). But, fortunately for us, thatwas not the final chapter in the Queens' splendid saga. The Sweet Potato Queens still have plenty of stuff to say and valuable wisdom to impart about how they went from being Cute Girls to Fabulous Women, including:
Dating for the Advanced, or Advancing
The Joys of Marriage — if you must
More Delicious, Death-Defying Recipes
The Promise for Men — six little words that willmake any woman Lolling About — the official activity of the Sweet Potato Queens
And, of course,
The All-True Story of the Two Most Wonderful Men in the World
Not to mention:
Reader Mail — honoring the adventures of brand-new Wannabes and Honorary Queens from around the world
If you haven't met the Sweet Potato Queens yet, this is the introduction you've beenwaiting for. If you already know the joys of Queendom, this is your official welcome-back party.
