Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this story.
The story takes place in Mississippi in 1963 where a 9 year old girl, Starla, through a series of unforeseen events, has her eyes opened to the harsh realities of the southern culture and her family life.
We liked the character development, the progression of the story, and the revealing insight into the racial climate of 1963. As one member said "It's a crackin' good read!"
A rich story about the relationship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Lenora Hickok. Although fiction, the story reveals the struggle of their relationship, and the historical figures and events of the period. Our independent research learned the author used letters from the Roosevelt library as a resource.
The author wrote a descriptive story but it was a bit rambling with flashbacks.
This book, has encouraged some to read more about Eleanor. Only 3 book club members liked this book and 4 were ambivilant.
Six out of seven of us liked this book. It's a romantic, soft, and enjoyable read that tells the story of mid-wifery, eastern Kentucky mountain people and the transplanted city nurse. The author writes beautifully of the culture, language and scenery of the area and into the life of a frontier mid-wife in 1945.
