Read in February, 2011

By the time I finished reading "Gap Creek", it was hard to imagine that anything else could go wrong for Julie and Hank as they try to make a life for themselves in South Carolina at the end of the 19th century. This is a story of love, hardship and eternal hope that life is worth living and what a young couple have to endure. Amidst all the tragedies that befall Julie and Hank, there is always hope that there is a new beginning for them to move towards.

Here is one notable passage for me from "Gap Creek":

"Everybody looks younger in death... I wonder why."
"Because they have stopped worrying.... All the grief goes out of them, if they went to heaven."
