Chantelle There were so many sad events in this book it's hard not to talk about it without giving away spoilers.


Young woman gets married, moves away from family, lives in seclusion, has children, there is a devastating flood, something terrible happens when rendering lard. I read this book in approx 2003 but can't recall if it had been recently published.

I did not love this book, not a bit, but it has come up in conversation many times and I would love to remember the name

``Laurie (laurielynette) | 1039 comments Maybe Gap Creek?

I remember this book having a lard rendering scene and the young couple having to face one trial after another.

Chantelle Yes!! That was the name, thank you so much Laurie!

``Laurie (laurielynette) | 1039 comments You're very welcome Chantelle. Good news, he's written a (somewhat) sequel to Gap Creek;

The Road from Gap Creek

Gap Creek was such a great book, I rated it 5 stars.
