MAGNOLIA SKY is a very good book; the author has written a beautiful story. Susan Crandall manages to convey the warmth and closeness of a small town in the south. Her character development is first-rate and her words are smooth and forceful.

The road to true love is never easy! Reluctantly, ex-army ranger Luke Boudreau forces himself to make the long trip to Mississippi. Guilt compels him to deliver personal words to a fallen buddy's family. But upon his arrival, confusion greets him. He thought he knew everything about his late army pal. He knew about the mother, the kid brother, the family greenhouse operation, but what Luke Boudreau did not know about -- was Analise.

Analise Abbott was content with her life. She loved the freedom and habits of rural Mississippi, yet she loved the Abbot family more. Analise Abbott wanted nothing to change. What Analise Abbot did not want -- was Luke Boudreau coming around and stirring up painful memories. Memories filled with shame and remorse.

What Analise Abbot did not want -- was Luke Boudreau to leave . . .

The author pivots her story around excellent secondary characters; these people and creatures help draw the story onto familiar ground for the reader. MAGNOLIA SKY may take place in small town, Mississippi, but the author's words are so persuasive the setting could take place in small town, Anywhere.

Susan Crandall writes a gentle love story about two guilt-filled people brought together through the love of family. A family governed by a wonderful and caring woman. Grade: A-
