This book started out very interesting. The author was very descriptive of the scenery and I felt that I was in the place she was describing. She made me feel that I was in that area of the country in that time and I was the main character, Alden.
Alden lived a difficult and sad life with her grandfather in a small little town where everyone seems to know everything about everyone and gossip moves fast. But, everyone in the town seems to be content and eager to help others.
Along came a self proclaimed minister and turned everything upside down. Even though the town had a minister, this gentlemen felt he needed to save souls and he thought the best way to do it was to find out everyone’s secrets.
As the book progressed, I felt there were too many characters and got a little confused and couldn’t keep everyone straight, especially all the men involved….neighbors, migrant workers, store owners, town people.
I felt the story dragged on at times, but I still wanted to keep reading because I wanted to know how it all ended.
I was given a Kindle copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.
