I really enjoyed this book. It starts out a little slow but as it quickly progresses you begin to feel like you are a part of these peoples lives and what is happening to them. Like you are a close friend and a part of the community. The author did a very good job of relaying emotions and thoughts to draw you in. It held many surprises. This book was very well written. The small town setting brings lots of warm feelings of nostalgia. It was inspirational in seeing how the some of the characters coped with their struggles and allowing God to take care of them. Good Read!!
