Verbena is my introduction to this author and I am very impressed with her writing style. Verbena is such a strong woman with a loving family who sticks together after much hardship. There were so many characters in this story and none of them were lost as the story unfolded. Verbena was so strong and I loved her children. This story was just so real, very plausible with high times and low times...happiness and heartache. I was truly touched by this story.
Ms. Kincaid is a great writer of southern lit. As in her other movels that I've had the opportunity to read, her plots take on unexpected, gothic twists. No neat, happy endings here!
Very enjoyable story. Beautifully written. Read this in a day. Kind of preditable, but so enjoyed this novel, & very little "bad" words. Refreshing tale of love lost & gained, forgivness, raising your family & some religion to make it even more meaningful.Not going to post this one; want to pass it on to my friends, then will post it. I will look for more books by this author.
I really enjoyed this book.............well written with great characters. Prepare to laugh, cry, and relate to this person!
