The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd
Revenge, death, deception… These are the things Cyrus Dodd has to overcome if he is to give Ruth the life he’s promised her. The problem is he’s got a prideful nature and when a seemingly innocuous argument leads to a bitter feud with his neighbor, his life changes forever. The plans he has falls by the wayside and before he finds a way to fix it, he comes to understand the meaning of regret.
In this early twentieth century family saga, two men come up against each other—both are iron-willed and stubborn. One will lose his farm; the other will lose his family. In a tale of betrayal, murder and revenge two West Virginia farmers will discover that being right does not necessarily mean being happy.
Believing he has lost everything Cyrus Dodd is forced to start over. He promises Ruth that this time it will be better, but the truth is he doesn’t know if it’s a promise he can keep.
Deserves more than 5 stars – The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd
Becky on Goodreads says…
The 4th book in the Wyattsville series deserves more than a five star rating. Cyrus Dodd will do anything to make his beloved Ruth happy. Even things he may regret. Cyrus is a man of great pride. He has been in a feud with a neighbor over something as little as a pig. Cyrus has a way of harboring bad feelings and his regrets. This story takes you through years of Cyrus and Ruth Dodd’s life; tragedies, blessings and yes, regrets. They had so many hardships in their lives and Cyrus always blamed himself but tried to do his best to make Ruth happy. I can’t tell you how many times I shed tears while reading his book. It just grabbed at my heart and soul. It’s a story that tells everyone, that no one is perfect, we all make mistakes, maybe we don’t make the best decisions sometimes and we all have regrets. The past is the past and can’t be brought back. But we move on and be the best we can be. We live each day to the fullest and treasure the “BLESSINGS” instead of dwelling in the regrets. This is one of my favorites from Bette Lee Crosby. She out did herself again!!
