    1. Pa Franklin has now taken over the responsibilities of the household and Kate is losing everything. The mound of dirt covering her husband’s body is only a few days old and now her life is drastically changing. Halley vocalizes her disapproval of her grandfather’s arrangements but he quickly squashes down her attempts to keep their family of three together on her father’s land. Moving in with Ma and Pa Franklin, watching others arrive in their wagons dissembling the life they had, and putt [...]


    2. When Halley's father dies in an accident involving an illegal moonshine still, everything changes. Halley's grandparents come immediately -- allegedly to help, but immediately Halley's grandfather insists that her father has gone to hell, because, seeing as Prohibition is alive and well during this time, only sinners have anything to do with moonshine. Rather than defend her late husband, Halley's mother crumples into the girl she grew up as, the daughter of the Baptist fundamentalist preacher w [...]


    3. Halley Owenby's family is poor, dirt poor, during the Great Depression. But they are happy at least until Halley's dad dies suddenly. Halley, her little brother, and mom have little choice but to move into her mother's parents' house. Halley's grandfather is a fire and brimstone preacher who demands hard work from everyone in the household while he's out preaching. He doesn't believe in education either; so Halley's desire to go to high school is snuffed out. Her grandma is basically a doormat a [...]


    4. LOVE this book. Set in the mountain region of Georgia during the Great Depression, Halley Owens comes to adulthood maintaining her family closeness while still developing her independence during a time when strong women were not especially admired or encouraged by society or their families. The book unflinchingly looks at how poverty affects the choices families had to make during the era but it never resorts to clichés or pity. Halley became a real person to me while reading this book and I wa [...]


    5. 4 starsA beautifully clean book about a young teenage Georgia mountain girl. Halley's father has just passed, and due to dire situations, her mother (Kate), brother (Robbie), and herself are required to move in with her exceptionally strict and fundamental baptist preacher grandfather. This book is set in the depression era and is incredibly descriptive as to the poor and sometimes shocking living conditions during the time. Looking back at what was needed just to survive was unbelievable. If yo [...]


    6. A nice story sharing how things were in the late 1930's. Halley and her family suffer the unexpected death of her father. Then they suffer moving with with her maternal grandparents and they all suffer under the hands of preacher " Pa Franklin. Halley is a strong character who I enjoyed reading about.




    7. Great book! Very interesting and well written. The author gives a real insight to that time period! Enjoyed it!
