    Not to be missed, this little book is full of surprise endings and delightfully amusing, interesting characters Henry is able to paint her colorful characters in clear detail with abundant doses of dry wit and charm Ample dialogue moves each tale along quickly and believably All eighteen short stories offer unique flavors of southern living, preferences and habits, creating a spicy mix of tales I found myself compelled to consume than once I loved the unusual perspectives and real life characte [...]

    I won this book on giveaway for a honest review I normally dont read short stories however I am glad I read this one It is set in Low County SC As I was reading about these southern women I felt I was personally getting to know them they felt so real You may even know them yourself I found myself laughing at their book has some humourous moments as well as sad ones What made the characters even believable was the fact they had flaws like real women which made it feel as if I was r [...]

    The setting and narrative in Ladies In Low Places are delicious, funny, witty, frank, and whimsical I love reading about the different Lowcountry settings in each story from trailer park to high society The short story format is very digestible, so it s perfect for me to dive into a great story before bed and be able to complete in one sitting I love that there is a little bit of darkness in each story, but you never come away with a feeling of melancholy or sadness Each character has a strength [...]

    Ladies in Low Places captures the essence of Southern charm These short stories depict the picturesque setting of the low country Mary Ann Henry s descriptions of time and place make you feel as though you re breathing the humid air of the salt marshes and walking amongst the trees draped in Spanish moss I enjoyed the quirky yet fiercely strong characters and how they each had their own personal struggles Struggles which parallel our own lives in some way whether young, old, North or South of th [...]

    Ladies in Low Places is a must read, I was so inspired by every short story Within each story, there was charm and humor I absolutely enjoyed reading this selection of short stories and would recommend it to any bookworm who loves great southern stories.

    This book was a collection of quick reads that was reflective of the ladies from the South The characters were varied and flawed which I find attractive as a reader.This book was a win in exchange for an honest review.

    Good Stories.

    I enjoyed this collection of short stories very much The characters were interesting and the stories were well told I look forward to the next volume.

    A collection of Delightful, with a capital D shirt stories of women in challenging situations In other words, women living their lives And they all happen to live in the low country The author s voice is charming and soothing, and the the stories have remarkable depth The foreword of the book explains it all how the term lady in the south, to a southern woman, is irony Meaning that these women, with their perfect manners, have a lot to them than meets the eye I also enjoy the descriptions of pl [...]

    Loved Ladies in Low Places and cannot wait for Mary Ann Henry s next book I was contemplating relocating to South Carolina when this book caught my eye at the library I think it was the first book of short stories that I ve read from cover to cover I bought a copy for my own library as it is a book that I will read again and again It s filled with love, laughter and life

    Terri Hale
    These short stories were fantastic Each one as fascinating as the next Mary Ann Henry is a gifted author I look forward to her next book

    Short story collections are things that I love, but somewhat hard for me to review Obviously, reviewing something with several distinct stories can be tricky but the bigger problem for me is that I usually read short story collections over a long period of time For example, it took me 53 days to read this 263 page book The fact that it took me so long to read this book is not a commentary on the quality I just like to go slowly through short story collections, reading no than one story a day I [...]

    Ladies in Low Places takes you deep into the sultry South and the life of some Southern women with all the nuances of the Lowcountry from the yearning for love to a racist past Henry s descriptions of the Lowcountry puts you there smack dab in the middle of the muck You can smell the stink of the pluff mud, feel the pull of the moon on your toes at ocean s high tide, lick the salt from your lips after a walk along the beach, see the divide the separation of blacks and whites and the confederate [...]

    This collection of short stories is superb These are stories about women who live in the South Carolina Georgia Lowcounty, and I fell in love reading about them Some of these women made me laugh out loud and at times I felt like yelling You go girl I would love for Mary Ann Henry to travel throughout the United States, and write stories about the many types of women she encounters I didn t read the stories in order that they were presented in the book, but randomly based upon how much time I had [...]

    I was reading this book as I was traveling It was a joy to read with fresh stories that provoked this reader to really think about the stories Unfortunately I left in a cab that I was in a hurry to get out of I hope reader picked up this book and enjoyed as much as I did My notes were lost with the book, so I must leave this abbreviated review Mary Ann Henry I want to read of your stories I won this book on through the First Reads Giveaway Program I do not know the author.

    Molly Cline
    Received this as a Good Reads First Reads book It was a good book for when you only have a few moments to read The stories are often times pretty short and only takes a few minutes to read Most of the stories were good but some left me thinking really Also if you read than one at a time it was kind of hard because you were still thinking about the story before it Not a bad book but nothing really special about it either But nice to have to read for when you need something for a minute or two.

    Kara Arden
    This book of short stories is full of beautiful low country imagery If you ve never been, you ll feel like you have after reading this book The women in these stories are so relatable, there is definitely something for everyone It s a great read for book clubs or vacation or just because you love to read.

    I was given this collection of short stories by the author through for a fair and honest review.The rhythms of the South resonate with every word of each story The flaws of each character make them all the real The grit and wit only strengthen these people that we have gotten to know through Henry s tales.

    A book of stories about women from the southern low country These stories show no matter their age, circumstance, or how far they fall and at times farther is better , they will always come back No one can keep them down for long, and with great shows of strength and courage, they will always come out on top.

    I won this book through the giveaway programThis is a collection of short stories about women and girls in the South The book was generally well written but I had a hard time connecting to most of the characters.

    I didn t realize this book was a series of stories until the third story silly me It was a little confusing until then because I was waiting for the stories to intersect Each story is a great little nugget of a story.

    I received this book as a first read It s a charming collection of short stories that will appeal to Southerners and non Southerners alike Most women will be able to relate to many of the stories.

    I received this in a giveaway I found it to be kind of slow at times, but I did enjoy it There are stories about southern women of all ages in this book that many will find relatable.
