Publisher's Summary

A Southern story of friendship forged by books and bees, when the timeless troubles of growing up meet the murky shadows of World War II. 

Deep in the tobacco land of North Carolina, nothing's been the same since the boys shipped off to war and worry took their place. Thirteen-year-old Lucy Brown is precocious and itching for adventure. Then Allie Bert Tucker wanders into town, an outcast with a puzzling past, and Lucy figures the two of them can solve any curious crime they find - just like her hero, Nancy Drew. 

Their chance comes when a man goes missing, a woman stops speaking, and an eccentric gives the girls a mystery to solve that takes them beyond the ordinary. Their quiet town, seasoned with honeybees and sweet tea, becomes home to a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp. More men go missing. And together, the girls embark on a journey to discover if we ever really know who the enemy is. 

Lush with Southern atmosphere, All The Little Hopes is the story of two girls growing up as war creeps closer, blurring the difference between what's right, what's wrong, and what we know to be true.

great characters

A fun read, a little predictable and ended fast. I loved the characters and would like to hear from them again.

Good Southern Tale

Most of it is very good. This book is better than her book, If the Creek Don't Rise. She has moments of greatness but there are some uncomfortable overtones.

All the little hopes

This book shows the compassion for others and inclusive attitude that is missing today. It is great story of acquiescence and kindness toward one’s fellow man . The main characters show kindness and no jealousy.

Great story for then and now!

We loved this story and all the intertwined relationships -taking us back to the feelings and experiences of the 1940's while dealing with life issues common to all generations.
