The past comes alive in this well-written and thoughtful novel full of secrets, drama, and family with a hint of Southern drawl.
As she begins the project, Jo-Lynn sees two suspicious men wandering around one night at the barn. Later, someone breaks into the house and sets the pantry on fire. Also, words alluding to her to get out of Cottonwood are spread on a wall in animal feces. Undeterred but very frightened, Jo-Lynn continues her work, and discovers a secret room containing papers that implicate her great-grandfather associated with the Ku Klux Klan. All this comes to a head toward the end of the book, answering questions for both Jo-Lynn and the reader about her family.
A secondary plot is presented concerning Jo-Lynns aunt and uncle and a young man named Valentine Bach. Starting in the mid-1930s, Bach and the aunt, Stella Neville, were lovers, and Stella became pregnant. But instead of marrying, Bach was forced by his parents into an arranged marriage to another girl. The baby girl is born and soon adopted by Bach and his new wife Lilly Beth. The secret stays hidden for the next seventy years, and at the climax of the story, Bach and Stella reconcile.
Written in first-person narrative, this book is mildly interesting and there is ample reference to God and how ones faith can help in times of tragedy and uncertainty. A quote from Nehemiah 6:2 speaks of schemers who try to undo ones project. This speaks to Jo-Lynn directly and strengthens her resolve. One criticism is that too many characters, namely relatives and family members, are introduced, making it confusing to keep them straight. Overall, the novel would be enjoyed by Christian women readers. Anita Tiemeyer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
