I would say this book is good, but not great. Anna Mae's husband leaves to work on a WPA project on the other side of the state of Kansas during the Great Depression. Before he leaves, he asks their neighbor Jack, who grew up with Anna Mae, to help her with the farm chores. Jack quickly turns this into an opportunity to remove Harley from Anna Mae's life and make her rely on him. There were a couple of elements that made things not quite realistic, thus the good but not great rating. First, it seemed a little unbelievable that Jack was the only person Anna Mae had to turn to, when she'd lived in the community all her life. Also, the dramatic tension carried on just a little too long and Jack's actions seemed a little over the top. I did enjoy reading a story set during this time period.

A heart rending read of a family's struggle to survive with their love intact during the historic dust bowl days in Kansas. Kim Vogel Sawyer shows how faith can sustain where little else remains, and how God can bring prosperity to the lowly.

Did you ever read a book that gave you such a warm feeling like a pair of cozy slippers or a fire in the winter? This is just that type of book. I was sorry to see the story end and now I can't seem to get settled into another book --they all seem drab compare to this one.

The cover of this book drew me. I did enjoy the book too. There were a few spots where it drug, but all in all -- a good story worth the reading. *****
