J. C. Wing's characters are so real, you feel you know them, and you react to them strongly, both those you like and those you don't. You can feel the suffocating heat and humidity of Mississippi, as it wrings the sweat out of the characters, and smell the flowers and aggressively-growing plant life. But these factors don't suppress the strong drama of the story.
Read it. And you'll want more.
Everyone from a large family has a Hope, one who is temperamental, selfish and angry when she doesn't get her way, and is passionate about something and, in this case, that something is her younger sister. However, she grows up to be a bright, responsible, caring person.
Aside from death, the Linsey family goes on and survives, much as it does in real life.
I smiled and cried, mainly cried, during the heartbreaking reality in this story of growing up in a southern town in the fifties and the tragedies befalling Faith and her sister Hope. Faith had a friendship that was frowned upon in that time of our history. I rooted for Faith to have a good life in the book. She so deserved it. The characters were real and the story emotionally packed. Sometimes the story seems to have a little too much descriptive detail, but I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves those slices of life that are emotionally charged.
Religion and family play a central role in this story. As it unfolds we see Faith, the main character, struggling to resolve the religious tenants by which she has been raised with the new reality that her preacher father is a racist. Loss of innocence evolves for Faith into a tale of growth and renewal. J.C. Wing has given us a story of love and family that is told with depth and clarity and upholds our faith in mankind.
It’s funny; we always think that things were simpler long ago. We live in a high-tech world living at a fast pace and this book shows us through its passionate and relative writing that growing up is never easy and each generation has struggles. We all have to worry about family expectations, choosing right from wrong, and what we would do if we witnessed civil injustices and how those decisions/actions would shape the people we want to become. The heroine Faith does all of that and more. Reading about her journey is thought-provoking, emotional, and above all else… meaningful.
The story line was excellent and I felt that the author was well informed on the era of time she wrote about. All seemed believable and accurate
