A uiet well written gentle tale set in the North Carolina mountains near our cabin in Rabun County Georgia The time is the 1930 s knee deep in the Depression and in the building of the Blue Ridge Scenic Parkway Characters were well drawn intimate and complete No stereotypes or straw men Velva Jean first appears at about age 9 or 10 just as she is being saved by Jesus and just before her beloved mother dies She loves her mama her brother and her singing and dreams of heading to Nashville some dayHer world is changed forever when her mama dies and her daddy leaves Her road to Nashville is diverted by the HArley Bright the devilish son of the local moonshiner now turned preacherSo much color and character in the book which was good because Velva Jean only contemplates learning to drive on page 266 which was a little slow even for me The last part of the book steam engined ahead like the train barreling towards Terrible Creek did but with less catastrophic results Or maybe not less we only have Velva Jean s reaction to the ending not Harley s I may need to think on this a bit Thanks to Elizabeth for the loan of the book It was beautifully written

I am speechless I have to put this book right up there with The Help and a few others I ve found amazing and which greatly moved me I would call it historical Southern fiction by a very talented woman Its about the people living in the Mountains up around where South Carolina North Carolina Tennessee Kentucky all come together before the Blue Ridge Parkway was built and how the coming of that road affected and changed their lives Many were excited many were afraid Its about judging things and people who are different and how change and unknowns cause fear which is a catalyst for destructive emotions How some can step beyond that fear and find the courage to follow their dreams and soar I highly recommend this book for its raw honesty and exposure of a life so completely different from those who have not lived secluded sheltered and cutoff in the gaps and hollers of the South
