In THE SOUTHERN EDUCATION OF A JERSEY GIRL, Jaime shares hard-won lessons on Southern etiquette, deep-fried foods, college football, and matters of the heart while living in the heart of Dixie—delivered with her quintessential and side-splitting Jersey twist. Whether she’s pushing the boundaries of what proper Southern ladies consider “polite behavior” or espousing Southern customs, Jaime isn’t afraid to speak up about love, sex, friendship, and other topics that are often sugar-coated in polite Alabama society.
I very rarely finish a book within a weekend, better yet two days. I decided to make it a goal to read Jaime Primak Sullivan’s, “Southern Education of a Jersey Girl.” As you all know I’ve interviewed Jaime before for the blog and feel some true Jersey Girl connection to her because she tells it like it is, love God and has a heart for people. Reading the book clarified that even more. I got to learn more about Jaime’s history and how she ended up in Alabama.
I don’t want to give it away but we learn about how devastating it was for her to deal with her Father’s passing and how that affected her romantic relationships. The story of her coming to terms marrying the Southern man, Michael Sullivan is great. She’s not afraid to tell her readers straight up about her struggles with her mother in law at first that have now made them closer and more. I loved reading about each of her children and why she named how she named them and more.
It’s such a great, easy read and keeps you locked in the whole time. I highly recommend it and give it a 10/10. I hope I can interview Jaime again soon for the site and get her feedback on the success of the book and Cawfee Tawk.
