No Rooms in Tara

About the book

This collection of novellas, short stories, and poems are set in a small south Georgia town, Mercy's Station, over the course of several years and is about people you either know or could be related to.  These stories have been described as "southern fried."

Pansy put the postcard in the sideboard until she had time to put it in her book, one of many that she had filled over the years.  If anyone wanted a verification of Pansy Louise Kyndrell Marsh’s existence, it could be found in there.  Her husband, Frank, had once referred to them as scrapbooks, and Pansy had been quick to inform him that these were memories, not scraps; therefore Pansy always called them her Memory Books.
