To her mother's delight, beautiful, high-stepping Yoruba of Harlem has been invited to participate in the cotillion that is thrown annually by the African American high society of Brooklyn. Caught between the sardonic indifference of her father, the excited determination of her social-climbing mother, and her prodigal boyfriend's militancy, Yoruba ultimately persuades her sister debutantes to shock the aging society doyennes in one of the most sidesplitting scenes in American literature. The Cotillion is a satire that captures the conflicts between activists and social climbers within black society in the 1960s.

Although the Civil War is over, it doesn't signal the end of fighting for the Fitzpatrick family, as the younger siblings come of age to chase their dreams and discover the power of finding the right partners. The tumultuous conclusion to the Cotillion Ball Saga proves that all's fair in love and war. Expressly Yours, Samantha: To escape her wicked uncle, Samantha Hughes cuts her hair to pose as a man and become Sam Hughes, a Pony Express rider. Valerian Fitzpatrick, too, joins the hard-riding circuit in an attempt to escape life in the family business. As he and Sam grow close, he's more than willing to protect he secret, but when she's forced to run yet again, does a future with Sam mean giving up the freedom he's always craved? A Widow's Salvation: Widow Pepper Fitzpatrick Brown honors her sacrifice by volunteering at the army hospital while raising three rambunctious boys. Colonel Elijah Williams, the head surgeon at MacDougall Army Hospital in the Bronx, can't shake his experiences in the bloody war...until he meets Pepper, who fears loving and losing again. It's hard to find happiness in a war-torn United States, but these two stand a fighting chance--if they can save what's left of their hearts. The Forgotten Debutante: Saffron Fitzpatrick spent her teenage years mourning the dead rather than dancing at her debutante ball, with the exception of one forbidden kiss with solider Ezekiel Boone, headed home from the battlefield after his brothers died at Chancellorsville. Fate reunites the couple three years later, and they discover unexpected common ground and begin to build a relationship. But though the war is over, a future together may still elude them...especially if Saffron's brother and the U.S. Army have anything to say about it. Sensuality Level: Sensual

With three weeks to go before Christmas Eve, she's determined to find a way to teach her solemn husband to accept help with his responsibilities and to join her in creating their very own Christmas traditions.

After her sister elopes with Caroline's betrothed, Caroline ignores the warning. Two miserable years later, she's determined to unite the family for Christmas. Unfortunately, her visit coincides with the unexpected birth of her sister's first child, raising the specter of the old belief. And Caroline causes more mishaps attempting to make amends. Then Lord Edward Masters offers aid, on his terms. She can accept his Christmas gift of love or suffer the consequences.

This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture addresses the cultural, social, and intellectual terrain of myth, manners, and historical memory in the American South. Evaluating how a distinct southern identity has been created, recreated, and performed through memories that blur the line between fact and fiction, this volume paints a broad, multihued picture of the region seen through the lenses of belief and cultural practice. The 95 entries here represent a substantial revision and expansion of the material on historical memory and manners in the original edition. They address such matters as myths and memories surrounding the Old South and the Civil War; stereotypes and traditions related to the body, sexuality, gender, and family (such as debutante balls and beauty pageants); institutions and places associated with historical memory (such as cemeteries, monuments, and museums); and specific subjects and objects of myths, including the Confederate flag and Graceland. Together, they offer a compelling portrait of the "southern way of life" as it has been imagined, lived, and contested.
