Wow. There are some things that happen in this book that really took me by surprise. The author knows this time period and writes it as if this family is real and we are reading the diary of this young girl with all the fears and raw emotions she has. Pearl and her family have faced one tragedy after another and to some it has made them stronger and others it has made them weaker. The author writes about a difficult path and shows us timely lessons where grief can weaken us and make temptation all that stronger to turn away from. Again I appreciate the author’s sensitivity to history and writes the facts in a way that feels very authentic.
I am not sure how I feel about how this story left off. I am anticipating the next in the continuing story of Pearl and her family- hopefully certain story lines will be resolved and I would like to see how Pearl turns out as a young woman after all she has been through. I also liked how Pearl had to remember what was True and what was a lie in regards to her and her family’s love for her. I think all of us can take that to heart when we are faced with lies that want to sneak in versus the Truth we know deep down about our heavenly Father’s love for us. Impressive story-telling.
I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.
This book was powerfully moving and left me wanting more. The story is raw and real and beautiful. My heart was wrapped up in the complexities facing the characters. It follows the author’s A Cup of Dust which I also loved. The writer has such a unique voice and is unafraid to take the reader into darker places and consequences yet we feel HOPE lacing through her story.
A couple of my favorite quotes that I even wrote in my journal because they moved me so: “Some of the best things we do ain’t remembered by anybody but God” and “If anybody ever asked me if I had a hero, I would’ve told them without batting an eye that it was my Daddy. I felt sorry for anybody who didn’t know him. My daddy was the best kind of man.”
Beautiful writing, beautiful story and I anxiously await the next installment!
I am anxiously awaiting the third book in the series (wish I didn't have to wait until next February!).
