Cousin (A selection from the My Kin collection)

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
The South probably won't rise again. We're too busy trying to keep up with each other.

Down here, family ties are strong but often as tangled as the kudzu that grows wild along the highways.

These stories are told with a helping of humor, a pinch of forgiveness and a dash of dismay.

This selection features Cousin, a short story from the upcoming collection My Kin, soon available as an ebook.

About Lisa Giles

Passing down stories is tradition here in the south. I grew up in Alabama listening to these tales of my family. Often embellished, yet sometimes too true, these stories are everything I love about the south.

I decided it was time to pass them along.

I still live in Alabama with my husband and children, where I write, teach, and wait for football season to begin each year. Most of us never leave the south, and the ones that do seem to eventually find their way back.

I am a southern guy who can relate to so many parts of this book. (in a positive way, lol)

I think everyone has characters like this in their lives, whether they live north or south of the Mason-Dixon line, and we love them, regardless.

People like this bring color to *everyone's* lives and I am thankful for Ms. Giles for sharing these people from her life.

Being from the South, I'd not be surprised that these stories are more than mostly true. :)

LISA is a very eloquent writer. As I was reading I imagined myself as a young girl in the south. Her writting makes you feel a part of the story and the authors life. I would recommend her to others!
