Who can resist good family stories? Anyone who knows me knows that I have plenty of family stories — many of which people wish I would keep to myself. But, Bailey White’s collection of short stories, Mama Makes Up Her Mind: And Other Dangers of Southern Living, is an irresistible collection about family and daily living. It is a great laugh aloud book – something that you would like to reread and share with others. The stories are quirky, funny, and most enjoyable.
The book features characters with plenty of personality, especially the mama stories. White’s mother is featured in many of the stories, and mama’s quirkiness seeps through the pages. Mama is opinionated, stubborn, and very adorable. She enjoys life, and she gets what she wants, even if it puts everyone else in danger. Other characters in the stories are handfuls, just like mama, especially her aunt and uncle. White has plenty of personality, too — she can be very sassy.
Mama Makes Up Her Mind: And Other Dangers of Southern Living proves as we age, life gets more interesting, especially when we focus on what is most important — the family.
