Great Story of Overcoming – #bookreviewer Salute

If you enjoy post Civil War Southern historical fiction, this is for you! I was nervous it was going to be an Oprah book club type book full of depressing stories, it wasn’t. Yes, the main characters have a hard time in the poor, segregated south, but there is also so much happiness. There are some really great characters to love of both races.

I really enjoyed it although I was disturbed by some parts. The sad parts are tough to get through, but I love how the author has made the characters so strong and optimistic through most of the story. Even when they are at their lowest they act to change their circumstances.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
