An unforgettable book

Elizabeth Musser is an incredible storyteller. The Swan House, the sequel to this book, captured my attention to the author with a wonderful story of Atlanta in the 60’s. This continuation of that story set many years later draws you into the confusion and rebellion of the daughter. A beautiful story of struggle, anger and rebellion and its effect on the main character and her family is identifiable by all of us one way or another. You won’t want to miss the blessing of seeing this family’s faith and unconditional love as Ellie resists but then surrenders.

Good follow up

This was a good follow up to The Swan House. It took awhile for me to like the main character, but once I did, I couldn’t quit listening. Simple, sweet, redeeming, but good heavens, we don’t really drink THAT much Coke in Atlanta!
