The Cotton Queen

"I’ll never be the kind of woman who wears pearls with her apron while cooking meatloaf for her husband. But when I was a kid, my mother, Babs, prepared me to be the next June Cleaver-- teaching me lessons that belonged to another era. Another world, practically. My mother’s world. But what can you expect from a woman whose biggest aspiration was to be Cotton Queen? 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 like I’d planned. And heaven help me, I’m going home."--Laney Hoffman,Cotton Queen, 1975
