Wow. What a good story. At first it was a little tough because of the dialect in which it was written, but once I got the hang of it, it was very apparent that this is exactly the "voice" it needed to be in. Young Ronny Gentry, through no fault of his own, is taken hostage by bank robbers. After being in their company awhile he starts to turn to their way of life. Being inside his head really helps you see how sin can slowly creep into our lives without our realizing. As Ronny travels from his little boring town of Blytheville to the wicked city of Jericho, in search of his father who abandoned the family years ago, he comes across some godly people who try to redeem him. Ultimately, Ronny is faced with a huge decision on his own; whether to continue in his life of crime, or return home where it may be boring, but where his life will be put back on the right track. Read the book! You need to take this trip with him. I look forward to reading more from Steven J. Carroll.

WON THIS GIVEAWAY COURTESY OF GOODREADS FIRST READS!

I really enjoyed the colloquial language throughout the book; being that I'm a southern girl, it was very easy for me to follow.

It is an unplanned adventure of young Ronny and his dog along with a couple of bank robbers. As he starts to identify with them, he begins to make some wrong choices. As it turns out these outlaws know Ronny's family-abandoning father, there the longing for his father leads him further down the wrong path. In the end Ronny wants to "be a good man," and therefore goes to make amends for the wrong he had done. Lesson learned: It is better to be an honest poor man with the richness of family and clean conscience than to be a rich man thoroughly alone with never a place to rest your head.

Very good read! the story holds several lessons within it. being an Okie I totally understood the dialect. The main character Ronny allows to see within the heart soul and mind of a young boy brought up on good morals and ways. my only question now is how old was Ronny at first I thought about 10 but as the story went further I believed maybe 13-14 but now i wonder if he wasnt even older can you be a little more specific to a age range?

Bank robbery, kidnapping and a long journey home for a boy and his dog.

I found the description of Moses and his family heart-warming. The "black folk's church" and the preaching were outstanding imagery...

Good triumphs over evil!

it is so refreshing to find a book that doesn't rely on sex and violence to "sell". this book is a nice story and the lead character is interesting.
