What other readers are saying about this title:
Lynn M. said:
This novel captivates you from the start when a little girl witnesses a woman tossing a baby into a well. As the story unfolds, one glimpses the incredible hardships of life during the Depression in Alabama where coal miners are faced with the possibility of death on a daily basis, housewives work themselves to the bone trying to make ends meet and children are expected to labor alongside their parents fron dawn until dusk. Yet, alongside these miseries there are the simple pleasures of life like jumping on cotton bales or sharing a family meal that make life bearable. Gin Phillips is a master storyteller who's first novel is a pleasure to read.
