liked it

This is a “sweet” book written in simple prose, perhaps to evoke simpler times. There are some class and race issues in the book, but they are just part of the landscape, like the laurel and rhododendron, and poplar, oak, maple and sweet gum that Jim so loves on the mountain near his home.

I didn’t love this book, but I did like it. There are some charming passages, but I have the feeling a male could identify more with the story.
