Synopsis: In small town West Virginia, 1954, one newcomer’s special gift with food produces both gratitude and censure. Will she and her daughter find a home there?
My Review: I wanted to read this book after reading it’s smaller prequel the novella Appalachian Serenade. Sarah is a new author and I was so impressed with the novella I was really excited to see Miracle in Dry Season. I really enjoyed this style of writing. I could just imagine this small town and all the narrow minds of the people involved. Sarah really knows how to weave a tale and her characters are so richly written.
You can just taste the dust and see the primly dressed women around town in this setting. While my heart was breaking for …. and how she was treated I was impressed by her strength and presence of mind.
I flew through reading this book even with all I have going on and I’m hoping it’s not the end of the series. This was a page turner for me for sure.
