ABOUT THE BOOK: Fifeen-year-old Cindy worked long days beside her migrant worker family on Michigan's sugar beet fields in the early 1940's - the "war years"-- until she met a dashing young man from the traveling carnival, bringing some joy and fun to her hard life. A tragic twist of fate-a dead field boss-sent two youngsters on the run, leaving everything she'd ever known behind.
Lucy Tucker is an old bag lady, a veteran of Chicago streets, who is not about to give up her independence-that is until a young displace woman with her gentle aging mother and dog named Dandy need her and Lucy's past begins catching up to her and she disappears again. Why won't Lucy come home?

My Thoughts: The fictional characters of the Jackson's Yada Yada novels are full of vividness, quirks,flaws,faith journeys, life lessons, disappointments, and life. The authors are experts at weaving their tales. Lucy is a character from early in the series. I met her in the House of Hope series. This story was a sad one and by the time I finished the book my heart grieved for Lucy. If you love books that cover WWII and the Dust bowl period of history you will love this book. It was a long and tedious read to me.
Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book free from Litfuse Publicity Group for my honest opinion of the book.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
