This Southern tale documents the ups and downs of dear friends through several seasons of life--both literally and figuratively. When diabetic-but-full-of-life Shelby begins her life as a wife and mother, her own mother is devastated by fear of what pregnancy may do to Shelby's health. The unfolding story is both deeply tragic and ultimately uplifting as Shelby's genuine love of life and desire to embrace every moment inspires every person around her to live more fully. Life is a gift, and Steel Magnolias is a classic call to live your life through every season--tragic or not.
