Bridging the generation gap, these stories convey the warmth and feeling associated with the best grandmothers. This collection brings together seventy-nine Southern stories from two Tennessee sisters. As they look back on their lives, they share the lessons they learned from childhood to grandmotherhood.
"I always thought a writer had to have degree," Ibbie Ledford says of her early fears of writing. Despite the fact she had written for several years, her memoirs remained secret until her son found one of her pieces and offered to assist with spelling and editing. Ibbie says, "I was elated as I began to gather the bits and pieces of my stories and recipes. I found stories that I had forgotten, one. . . in my Bible I could not even remember writing." These were collected to produce Ledford's first book, Hill Country Cookin’ and Memoirs.
Her second book, Y'All Come Back Now: Recipes and Memories, is a collection of not just her favorite food, but also anecdotes about how people in the Hill Country have adapted to changing times and modern progress.
Mrs. Ledford has teamed up with her sister, Johnnie Countess to write Stories from the Hearts of Two Grandmas. Mrs. Countess is a columnist and feature writer for the Dyersburg News. The two sisters are best friends and live near one another in Dyersburg, Tennessee. These self-avowed members of the S.O.G. (Silly Old Grandmas) Club enjoy spending what little spare time they have spoiling their grandchildren.
