This book gives great insight into a period of history few of us could imagine living through. The story is told with heart and humor through a wonderful cast of characters as they struggle to survive. Reading it through their eyes made me want to learn more about the dust bowl.

This is a good story, but not a great read. There were a lot of stumbling blocks in typos, dropped words and wrong words. For example, I'm quite certain Dovie was wringing the towel, not ringing the towel. And the chickens were living in a coop, not a coup.

I just finished this book and I thought it was a good read, basically. It is a story of how families during the Great Depression survived it and the Dust Bowl too. I liked the characters who were well drawn. The author should have used "nodded" to mean yes instead of using "shook her head." It also detracted from the book to find misuse of the apostrophe. Occasionally, the six-year-old spoke like an adult rather than as a young child. To top it all off, the author is probably a devout Christian, but I did not care for the Christian religion (or any other religion) to play such a prominent role, almost like the author was proselytizing, and I didn't appreciate that at all. Had the book been so advertised, I would not have read it.

After reading a few chapters of this, I had to check to see if I had gotten a young adults novel by mistake. Interesting story line but geared more to a younger reader, which I definitely am not. Little, if any, character developement and the characters themselves were two dimensional.

The key to an enjoyable character-driven story is to make the reader care what happens to these fictional people from the get-go. Quail Crossing is populated with well-drawn individuals who'll capture your sympathy and imagination from the moment they enter the scene. While the book is well-researched and there's plenty of action, it's the cast of quirky characters you'll be routing for. Warts and all, they get under your skin and keep you turning pages to find out just how things will work out for them. You will feel the pain of a grieving mother, share the woes of a young man bearing the responsibility for his younger syblings while experiencing the angst of first love, and cheer on the children who, in spite of hardship, still enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood. You'll even find some understanding for a confused teenage girl who just wants to have her way. Quail Crossing is a fine effort from an up-and-coming author.

I don't usually read historical fiction but this story was very entertaining. I found myself laughing and smiling several times throughout the book. I loved the kids in this story. I purchased this book on my kindle and became lost within the pages in no time. I would recommend this book to anybody looking for a great story to enjoy. Jennifer, you have written a wonderful book and I can't wait to read the next one as well.
