"I owe the boldness that I tapped to the poor women in my blood." pg. 59

My grandma, Brenda Joyce, was one of those women for me. She was also a big fan of dancing barefoot in the kitchen--especially when Dolly came on. This book felt like talking with her, sipping too-sweet tea while Here You Come Again played on the radio.
