Beschreibung:

If anyone out there has ever spent any time around Southerners, you will know that they have a very different way of doing things. Different from Northerners, that is. GRACIE-ISMS are told from the eyes and ears of a New York City child (me!) who happened to be born to Southern parents. Gracie and Sam were born and raised in The South and somehow ended up in New York City years apart and found each other to create Rhayne, the child born in The Bronx, New York. For those of you who have been to The North and to The South, you will be able to understand how different things look between the two. For those of you who have lived in The South and then went up North, you will be able to see the differences as well. BUT, for those who lived in The North and then went down South, you will be able to feel my dilemmas as you read GRACIE-ISMS. This sweet little gem of a story takes you on a journey from this New York City childs mind into the Southern world in which my parents identify. The story allows you to understand what was happening in my world every time I had to figure out the important meaning of one of my Southern familys old adages. The story is light-hearted, funny and shines as I compare my Northern reality with their Southern reality as only a child could do but with a great adult twist. GRACIE-ISMS shows my over-active imagination at its best and how it sometimes got me into trouble, kept me from sleeping, made me leery of my own body parts as well as made me think my family was from some other planet. If you know anything about The North, you will know that the pace is pretty fast and we like to get things done quickly and without anyone getting in our way. The South, on the other hand, has a slower and more relaxed pace with room for friendly chit-chat at any given time, on any given day and in any given place. I have spent a great deal of time in both places and love them equally but for the sake of this book, PLEASE take time to make yourself a nice glass of sweetened iced tea, kick off your shoes, get comfortable and get ready to spend the next few pages living and laughing alongside me. GOD Bless & Safe Keeping. Rhayne
