I was reminded once again to never judge a book by the cover alone with this book. As you see the cover is beautiful, gives the impression of a love story that will sweep you off your feet, but that really isn’t my style. I need angst, drama, really issues that will leave me on the edge of my seat. What the cover is hiding is one of the most realistic stories that takes you from your comfy chair and places you in a southern town where Southern justice and evil thinking runs the town Monday throughSaturday and they all come together under one church roof on Sunday to worship the Baptist way. Heads are turned, giggles are heard, sins are abundant and survival of this small town will be the hardest thing you have ever done in your life.

No this isn’t a religious book, this is a story of two people who followed the traditions, suffered the blows life had dealt them and found a way to make it through the country muck. Drew Dunne had a football career lined up when he entered college. He had suffered loss, heartache and lived with guilt that nearly suffocated him. Results of bad choices were going to haunt him for years to come, then that one injury, the injury that every athlete prays will never happen, occurs and Drew loses the last piece of sanity he had in life. Now married to a woman who hates him, blames him for her unhappiness and a father in law that dictates what is going to happen in his baby girl’s life, Drew wonders if ending it all wouldn’t be a better solution than trying to survive it.

Allison Bennett found herself married to an evil man who treated her horribly. When she hears they are moving back to a small Georgia town, she loses everything, even down to the furniture and items that belonged to her Grandmother and family.

Under The Mayhaw Tree by Charlotte Boyett-Compo. Charlotte Boyett-Compo did an amazing job writing this book the storyline was well written and the characters where well developed that I wanted to jump into the book and give a smack down to two or three characters. This book contains emotional and physical abuse.

Living under a cloud of tragedy for which he has assumed blame, Drew Dunne has known hell for the past sixteen years. A Small-town football star Drew sacrificed everything for friendship and guilt. He has spent most of his life unloved and unwanted. A kind touch, a gentle smile, an encouraging word are all wisps of memory from before the accident. For him there is only family, duty, loyalty.
Drew is a very unhappy man and he contemplates suicide until he meets Allison.
Will the truth come out after 16 years? Can Drew ever find the happily ever after?

Allison Bennett moved to Colquitt, Georgia with her husband and meets Drew. When Allison looks in the mirror, she sees a woman whose life has gone from bad to worse. At the mercy of an abusive husband, she wants to leave but is scared he will hunt her down and find her. Sweet tenderness touches is something she can only dream about until she finds it in the arms of Drew.

Will Allison leave her husband? Can she find happiness?

In this small town of Colquitt, Georgia, evil lurks around every corner and capturing happiness has an incredibly high price.

*Disclaimer* I received this book from Book Plug Promotions in return for a fair and honest review.

*Warning: This book includes quite a bit of sexual and physical abuse. If these topics are triggers for you, please do not read this book.

Drew has had a hard life. That's putting it gently. He had an abusive father, his mother died at a young age, his chance at professional football was ruined, and the town he lived in blamed him for the death of his best friend. Add a group of men out to kill him and that’s Drews life summed up. Allison married young after having to quit college. She married a nice looking man who longed to be a coach. What other secrets did he have that he longed to achieve?

This is not a book I can say I truly enjoyed. It was raw, graphic, and maybe in some parts, uncensored. It will tear at your heartstrings and possibly break you. This book depressed me from the beginning to about ¾ of the way through. It touches on subjects such as bullying, sexual and physical abuse, and had an incredible amount of violence in it. If you are of the faint of heart, this is not for you.

Now, after what I've said above, I enjoyed reading the last quarter of the book. I laughed, smiled, and enjoyed the story line. The author is incredibly descriptive in her writing. This was a positive and a negative throughout different parts of the book. As a whole, had I known more detail what the story line was, I probably wouldn't have read the book. It just is not my type of scene.

The author did a great job writing this book though. Her writing flowed, the ideas flowed well, and the scenes fell together smoothly. If you like reading intensely dark books that surround themselves around such tragic stories like Drew had to tell, I think you will enjoy the book.
