My Thoughts On The Book: This wonderful little book with less than 100 pages was very touching. As I read it I had to pause between each chapter and let the depth of the authors pain and tragedy sink in. I want this review to truly share the feelings I had while reading this book. My heart was torn apart as I read the struggles of this little girl. Her search for family, love, acceptance, and forgiveness made me not want to put the book down until it was finished. It was only then that I experienced tears of joy for her story. This book was an extremely beautiful and moving story. Her very first page hooks the reader in as it shares with you in simplistic terms... "This is my story. I'm glad you're here. It helps me to know I'm not alone anymore." I guarantee that you will not want to put the book down until the very last page. I cannot wait for Carver Road. I encourage my readers to go out and grab this book today. It is a must read and one you won't want to miss out on.

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.
