This book held a special place in my heart. My mom and Dad, grandparents, and cousins all live in Pennsylvania and many of the things mentioned in this book instantly brought back memories of the coal mines, PA life, the towns and the farming as now I live on a little farm only in Upstate, NY. The book starts out in 1914 ( My grandparent's time!) A accident happens to Andrew destroying his opportunity to work on the railroad and his wife pleas for him to leave. They start a farm together and things aren't as easy as they seem. Love story, hardships, cruelty, harshness touch the family's life. It is a story not soon forgotten. This reminded me a bit of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath a book that just hit hard on humanity but one that shows what life can bring during uncertain times. A thought provoking read. I did receive a Advanced Reader's Edition of book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged. This book will be out for purchase on June 27, 2017
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30
