God Save the Sweet Potato Queens | [Jill Conner Browne]

God Save the Sweet Potato Queens

Jill Conner Browne, royal boss of Mississippi's own Sweet Potato Queens, introduced them to the world in the hilarious best seller The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love. Fortunately for us, that was not the final chapter in the Queens' saga. The Sweet Potato Queens still have plenty to say and valuable wisdom to impart about how they went from being Cute Girls to Fabulous Women.

Publisher's Summary

Hallelujah! The Sweet Potato Queens are back!
In 1999, Jill Conner Browne, royal boss of Jackson, Mississippi's own glorious Sweet Potato Queens, introduced them to the world in the hilarious best seller The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love (which contained everything you ever need to know about love, life, men, marriage, and the importance of being prepared). But, fortunately for us, that was not the final chapter in the Queens' splendid saga. The Sweet Potato Queens still have plenty of stuff to say and valuable wisdom to impart about how they went from being Cute Girls to Fabulous Women, including:
  • Dating for the Advanced, or Advancing
  • The Joys of Marriage - if you must
  • More Delicious, Death-Defying Recipes
  • The Promise for Men - six little words that will make any woman swoon
  • Lolling About - the official activity of the Sweet Potato Queens

    And, of course,
  • The All-True Story of the Two Most Wonderful Men in the World

    Not to mention:
  • Reader Mail - honoring the adventures of brand-new Wannabes and Honorary Queens from around the world
    If you haven't met the Sweet Potato Queens yet, this is the introduction you've been waiting for. If you already know the joys of Queendom, this is your official welcome-back party.

      "The Best of the Bunch"

      Of all 3 Sweet Potato Queen books, this is by far the best. All the laughs are there, but the end is tempered with a sweetness that requires kleenex.

      "Honest, warm-hearted and of course, funny"

      After reading (and loving) "The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love", I was thrilled that my (now, at least in my mind) dear friend Jill again picked up her pen. Her books are funny, touching and insightful, and has a way of really "hitting home". I laughed and I cried. Hey, if for no other reason, buy the darned thing to hear the chapter about Chimney Swifts.

      "A wonderful book"

      This is soooo good! I laughed out loud so many times. I almost had to pull my car over at one point, because I was laughing so hard, I could barely see to drive. The end, about the two most wonderful men in the world, is so real and deep that I was crying, but it was not a bad feeling. Jill Conner Browne is marvelous at putting feelings into words. I wish Audible had all of her books on tape.

      "poor recording quality"

      I have heard Jill Conner Browne person and have purchased two other of her works from Audible so I am familiar with her speaking voice and style. The recording quality of this is very poor; it sounds as though the recording has been sped up a little making her voice sound very machine gun like rapid with a strange echo or reverb in the background as a result. Great book, funny stories, but the recording quality is very hard to listen to. I did not think the entire recording would be like this after listening to the sample so I purchased it anyway and feel as if I have wasted a credti.

      "Best of the Best"

      Funny, bawdy, memorable. This is my favorite book. I quote from it regularly and have had 100% success with the "promise". I wouldn't offer this to my mohter-in-law but I did share it with my daughter. She loved it too!
