A story that is as old as families and just as sad as a child's tears. The education Dixie gets is one too many children got, and still get. Ms. Everhart writes with words that will bring you to tears time and time again in this sad story of a Southern-Northern family that tears itself apart and puts itself back together, but too late to save the innocence of a child. She makes you want to strike out at some. She makes you want to shake some. And she makes you want to shield the innocent.
This book left me sad and frustrated and not wanting to write a review. I recommend this book for those of you who read the real tear jerkers in women's lit. This one certainly qualifies. Don't forget the tissue box.
I was provided an eARC by Kensington and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.
