    1. Beautiful, just beautiful! How I love a coming of age story set in the south, but this had the beautiful message of forgiveness of sin paid for by Jesus our Savior as well!


    2. I would say this book was just "okay". As it is set in the segregated South, I thought there might be some interesting commentary or insight into race relations, but there wasn't. When a ghost angel and Jesus show up in the prologue, I thought there might be some solid elements of magical realism or fantasy, but there wasn't. In the end, it was just a story, and after I finished, I shrugged my shoulders, muttered "okay", and moved on. By no means was it a terrible book, but it wouldn't be at the [...]


    3. This was my favorite book of the summer, a slight novel that totally accomplishes what it sets out to do. Trobaugh tells her delightful story through the eyes of a precocious child whose mother has married a wealthy man after her husband's death. Neglected, Jordan is befriended by the family cook. The interwoven stories of the characters in a small town in the south in the 50's and their resolution is a pleasure to read.


    4. I was enjoying this book until just past half way through it. Whenever I read the phrase, "Little did they know" I cluck my tongue and know I'm in trouble. Most of the characters were enjoyable and I liked the concept of the story, but it lost its way.


    5. This was a pleasant, easy, quick read. I enjoyed the characters and their voices. I think I would have liked it better if I hadn't been comparing it to Trobaugh's Swan Place, which I ultimately liked more.


    6. I loved this book. It is similar to the help in the era and location, but the plot and characters are entirely original. The theme is uplifting and after reading it you'll feel like a better person for sharing in their journey.


    7. FOUND THIS AT THE BROOKSIDE OFFICE SUPPLY SHOP $1!! REALLY GOOD SOUTHERN FAMILY STORY. NO OVER THE TOP RACISM, OR LANGUAGE, ETC. HALEY WILL READ IT NEXT. SWEET CHARACTERS WITH INTERESTING THINGS TO SAY!








    8. An easy read, if a bit on the religious side. Bits of humour to brighten some grim situations. Realistic characters - some likeable and some annoying, as people are.



    9. Easy reading, good book over all. Not normally my kind of book but I did enjoy it and the content was good.



    10. Deep in the old south this story follows the life of Jordan during one summer in her young life. It is a well told story. The characters seem true to the time period. I enjoyed reading it.



    11. "Trobaugh's writing style is truly lyrical and her stories are gentle and peaceful. I love her books and only wish there were more of them.



    12. This is a great book with some great southern female characters! I'm sure you'll fall in love with JordanI did :)




    13. I'm not a religious person, but it was otherwise an enjoyable read. Jordon was a little girl that was the highlight of the book for me.
