a step above Siddon's usual novels, which often veer into the dreaded genre of Romance. ( )

Siddons writes wonderful tales of the South...This story starts in Lyton,Georgia. The year is 1961 and the civil rights movement has yet to reach the little town not far from Atlanta.They still have "colored" and "white" drinking fountains and Brown vs Education is ignored..Peyton a twelve year old girl lives with her widowed father. Something is missing from their lives then along comes Cousin Nora..stirring up the small town.... Is a very good book to read. I enjoyed it ( )

After a very slow start and an annoying, negative child the book finally starts going about 150 pages in. If you can stay the course it's not a bad book.
I think the whole book boils down to if you expect too much of others you will always be disappointed. ( )
