But when I was a kid, my mother, Babs, prepared me to be the next June Cleaverteaching me lessons that belonged to another era. Another world, practically. My mother's world. I couldn't wait to leave home and get away from her. But now, well let's just say life hasn't turned out quite as I'd planned. And heaven help me, I'm going home.LANEY HOFFMANCotton Queen, 1975It's funnyall I ever wanted was to teach my daughter, Laney, how to be a lady so she could find a good husband and take her rightful place in our community.
