The southern front porch setting on the cover invited me in and the opening pages, a letter from one sister to another, enticed me to stay. I love small town settings, especially from the south.

This is a strong rendering of a difficult time, showcasing the many ways people deal with loss and tragedy. I love the southern setting, and a boarding house in the south is an added bonus.

Dolly is so easy to connect with, as with most of the characters, and I love the growth they go through. The stories that live inside the Blackberry Springs boardinghouse are so enticing. I enjoyed the pacing, and the writer's voice is clear and inviting.

Great cover, wonderful array of characters, enticing setting, and solid writing.
