    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "The Depression, Dust Bowl, Loss and Love"

    In Knollwood, Texas in the 1930s, Dovie Grant, living on the farm with her father and mourning the loss of her husband and daughter, has closed herself off to others. So when James, her father hires a young 18 year old boy who is caring for his three younger siblings to help on the farm, Dovie wants nothing to do with it. The youngest, Alice befriends the ornery goose, Norman, and from the time they meet, Alice and "Mr. Norman" are inseparable. While Bill, the oldest, Elmer, and Alice work hard and adjust to life on the farm, Evie, the oldest girl, tries to make trouble and wants to go on a search for their parents . . . who abandoned them. When Alice begins to call Dovie "Mama Dovie", Evie comes unglued. Quail Crossings is a good story of a different time, a time of pulling together, working hard on the family farm, of discipline and of faith in God . . . hardship was a way of life . . . many Americans cannot fathom such a time as this . . . Quail Crossings will restore your hope and faith . . . don't miss it . . .

    "Great listen."

    I usually listen to business books on road trips. This was a nice change of pace. Draws you in quickly, doesn't disappoint.
