Deborah on Goodreads
This one surprised me. I picked it up as a free book on Kindle because I liked the name of the book. I am not sure what I was expecting, but I have to say this book was totally different than anything I expected.

From the first words until the ending chapter I literally could not put the book down. I stayed up until midnight to finish the book. From the first words..”I was barely thirteen” to the ending I was caught up in the world created by Bette Lee Crosby.

I found her main character to be a very interesting lady. The book goes back and forth between current events and past history and I enjoyed both story lines, as reading one helped me to know the character better.

The only part I found a little strange was that the story is told by the main character …even after her death, she continue to tell the story.

I don’t normally like stories that are “told” or Narrated instead of allowing the reading to experience the action as it goes along, but in this case, I think it works.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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.
