To escape his poppa’s physical abuse and their dirt-poor farm life, Jim flees to an imagined prosperous city life where he can make his own choices, ignoring God patiently knocking on his heart’s door. Settled in town, Jim strays from God and the way of faith his momma taught him. He meets a girl and loses his heart … and meets another girl and loses his willpower. Jim wrestles with social and moral dilemmas as he makes a choice beside Caney Creek that will alter the lives of five people. (Back cover description)
This is an interesting story about the impact our choices can make on our life and the lives of others. I liked learning about this time period and found myself caring a lot about Jim and his family. I especially liked how faith and prayer are so important in the story. This was a fast-paced novel that kept my attention!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
