I was tempted to drag out that old cliche–steel magnolia
regarding Mary Ann, but magnolia blossoms shatter and fade quickly. As this memoir attests, Mary Ann has not. From her personal tragedies, rich family life, recognition of the unfairness of the Greek system, yearning to experience life in other places, adjustment to being wife of a Delta farmer, her time as a law student at UM and Harvard (where Barack Obama was a classmate), her tenure as University of Mississippi attorney standing up to the KKK, and later, powerful alumni over NCAA violations, to her counsel in banning the Confederate flag on campus, Mary Ann has always sought to do the right thing, and to grow. She’s a gracious lady, but more importantly, an exemplary, shatter-proof woman with a great sense of humor who loves her family, Ole Miss, and a good martini. – LH
