A Few Reviews by Readers:
I was so disappointed when I came to the end of this book, as I wanted it to go on and on, and continue the great stories of the different characters. I know there’s a tale that I’d like to hear from author Rose for most of the characters she introduced here. It was an evocative, heartwarming, and funny (at times) book that completely immersed me in that time and place and led me through the lives of these very real and flawed characters. It is well-written, well-paced, and engrossing.
I haven’t enjoyed a book this much in a long time. The beauty of the words drew me in right from the beginning. I wasn’t sure I could identify with characters from a small Southern town, but these people were so real that I felt an immediate connection. It was like I had known them and their small town all of my life. I wanted to read this book slow and easy, reluctant to let it end, but the story would not wait for me and as the action picked up I found myself lost in the lives of these people. Laughing with them, worrying about them, and holding my breath as events unfolded, I found myself at the end before I had even realized it had happened. I hope that the author continues the story, but if not … thank you for the great ride.
