I am glad to have read this book. It takes place in Tennessee in 1947 and describes the year,
(and more) in the life of a family who takes in a 6 year old african american child after
his family suffers a tragedy.
The main character is a 9 year old girl who desperately wants a complete family after her abusive
father dies at age 28. She wants the sweet little 6 year old to stay with them, even though
others are against it. She dreams of a new father for her and her brother(s).
This story tells of pain and hardship and loss, but also of tremendous love and friendship and making the right choices. We should all remember to stand up for what we believe in and for
what is ultimately important!
