This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

This captivating story takes place in the Sugar Fork Valley of the Great Smoky Mountains wilderness during 1925-1926. Nate Randolph and his five unique daughters wrestle to survive after the death of Callie (his wife and their mother) as well as to maintain their farm, forests, family, and faith against an evil lumber company manager seeking to clear-cut their virgin woodland. A cast of delightful characters, including gypsy siblings, Cherokee Indians, a granny midwife, a world-famous writer, and even a flesh-and-blood Haint, join our heroine, 16-year-old Abbie Randolph, in her life-and-death struggle.

Abbie falls in love for the first time, helps run the farm, and mothers her independent sisters while battling to preserve her faith when senseless murders threaten to destroy her family and way of life. Will the Randolph family survive intact? Will the farm be saved? Only a miracle could make it happen. With the march of the industrial age, especially industrial lumbering, the roaring '20s, Prohibition, the increasing momentum for a national park, and the onslaught of a modern world, trains, and radio communication, the traditional life and ways of our Southern Highlanders were about to change forever.

Great story....Smoky Mountain life and its people.

Based on the author's experience living in the Smoky Mountains. He brings out the best and worst of people from a bygone era. Love the use of the Good Book and how it brings hope to a hopeless situation.

Great Story Line. Horrible Narrator <br />

I listened to the first book in the series and as so happy to see a sequel available. I am so disappointed in the narrator and her many different voice impressions. They all sound like an old lady voice. It's so bad I am not going to finish listening.

One of the worst

This one was so sugary sweet and preachy it took a lot for me to get through it. Everytime there was a prayer or sermon you got to hear the whole thing. I wouldn't waste a credit on this one.
