Love, Faith, Family, Hard Times in the South

I've found another wonderful southern author! The story of Dove and her family, their losses and triumphs, is one I will not soon forget. Losing her mama to illness, and left with her two younger siblings and her step-daddy, Dove, just a teenager is left to care for them all and go to school, as well. Dove's Aunt Bett (her mother's sister) steps in to help, offering a string of Bible verses as a reminder to Dove to stay on the "straight and narrow". Roy Ellis, Dove's step-daddy, a "mostly good man" loves his three kids, but he's grieving awful bad . . . and it's not long before he goes back to the honky tonk and finds himself a young bride. Crystal, just seventeen, loves Roy Ellis, and the family accepts her, even Aunt Bett. And then the unthinkable happens. Again. It's been a long, long time since a story has impacted me like this one. Don't miss it . . .

Outstanding characters with a delightful heroine.

The first 2 hours of this book are pretty bleak, but stick with it! It is a wonderful story with an upbeat ending. If you enjoyed Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt, you will love this too! This was my first book by Augusta Trobaugh and I can't wait to 'read' another.
