Inspirational story about inner city Dallas
August 3, 2012
As always, Wingate's story has characters you will care about and issues that will inspire you to do something significant in the world. Illiteracy, homelessness, mortgage fraud and more are blended into a real page-turner.
The Summer Kitchen is Lisa Wingate's new exciting and inspirational book! It is one of those straight through books-Can't put it down until finished.Seventeen year old Rusty and his twelve year old sister, Cass Salley Blue, runaway from home just after their mother's funeral, to avoid foster care. Barely earning enough to keep a place to live and food on the table, they end up in a dilapidated apartment in a struggling section of Dallas. SandraKaye Darden is preparing her deceased uncle's little red house for sale. The house is located near Cass and Rusty's apartment.The Summer Kitchen is laced with inspirational quotes. Cass Salley Blue: "Some lady told me once that when you don't like where you are, you could close your eyes and think of the place you'd rather be...If you believed it enough she said, it'd be just like you were there. A mind trip she called it.""If the mountain's big, you gotta dream bigger, Cass Salley Blue. Nothing is impossible if you've got enough faith. You remember that." Cass Salley Blue and Opel in her new "tshoos" will be long remembered!This is a very special book by an extraordinary author! A book that hopefully makes it to the movies soon.I highly recommend "the Summer Kitchen"!Ed
