Happy Monday all!
Today I’m sharing with you my review for this book that I truly enjoyed. It was just a good old fashion feel good story written by a remarkable storyteller! Thank you so much Lisa for my invitation to this tour!🌟
Sean Dietrich masterfully wove together this brilliant story. This was a good old-fashioned feel good story sprinkled with heart and hope. Short chapters, three separate storylines, all with a common thread of family. Not the family you were born to, but the family that you choose. This is a definite character driven story without a lot of bells and whistle‘s. There was just something so refreshing about this book for me, so much charm so much goodness. I listened to the audiobook that was narrated by the author and it was almost like being told a bedtime story, and I loved the songs sprinkled throughout, a lot of them brought back memories of my childhood.
Marigold was abandoned by her family when she got pregnant at 15. She was a special girl with a healing touch, but after losing her baby in the forest she found her place in a brothel. Paul and Vern were the best of friends travel in the south with their Bloodhound. Along the way they collected a family. Not only did they find marigold’s baby and name her Ruth, but they also adopted a mother and her two kids. Cooter (Coot) was a child preacher with an incredible memory, just searching for a place to belong, with a box full of cash. All these characters wormed their way into my heart, but I have to admit that the Paul/Vern story resonated with me the most. I loved how these two men bonded with these children and were so helpful to the mother. A beautiful story with a wonderful ending that blended all these separate threads together magnificently. Next time you are in the mood for a genuine story full of clever and lovable characters, this is the book for you!
