I'm bereft now that barefoot summer has past and I will no longer spend time with these vivid characters through their deepest sorrows and journey to find themselves. Spectacular story coupled with a perfect performance. Will have to read again right now!
...the entire thing fell apart over the dialogue of an increasingly hoaky kid. Demanding, unrestrained and whiny. It commandeered the whole story. This book jumped the shark in Chapter17 and I decided I wouldn't skip 30 seconds 1 more time. Too bad. it had such promise. All the yapping didn't get the story anywhere. It was unproductive, so it fast became annoying.
Spoiler alert: sort of
Too many unrealistic scenarios, including ideas of selling a big family held oil company, for the "love" of a complete stranger's child. After only a week or two. Everyone falling in love, new jobs miraculously appearing in a small town for outsiders and the perfect acceptance of church going folk. I'm from Texas, I go to church and I know better. Suspension of disbelief doesn't cover what you need for this section. The author was clipping along at a good pace until all this.
Since I already know what happens I'll give this up. If the author has another book, I'll try it as long as invasive child dialogue isn't evident.

A little corny and pretty predictable, but a nice pleasant read for summer. Loved the characters. Good narration. I like this author.
