From dust jacket: Mellowed by Time is the confession of faith of a Charlestonian. Others have wondered what makes Charlestonians so fiercely loyal to their city; Mrs. Verner has the answer. Her credo is expressed in beautifully simple, restrained prose. There is warmth, vitality and deep affection throughout, as well as a hearty and honest zest for living. It is illuminated by a finely balanced humor which can only spring from a poised and integrated mind. Those who know Charleston already will love the city more after having read Mellowed by Time. Those who have never visited Charleston will year to see the city for themselves.
