Fair and Tender Ladies
by Lee Smith




Overview -
Ivy Rowe, Virginia mountain girl, then wife, mother, and finally Mawmaw, never strays far from her home-but the letters she writes take her across the country and over the ocean. Writing to hold onto what's passing, she tells stories that are rich with the life of Appalachia in words that are colloquial, often misspelled, but always beautiful.

From childhood, when teachers encouraged her gift for language, to her rebellious teenage years when she swore against motherhood-only to then become a mother-and on through life, Ivy writes with insight, honesty, and a passion for living that is sure to be infectious.
