This book is so descriptive and beautifully written, you feel like you are sitting along side RubyLyn while she tells her story. You can feel the summer heat in the tobacco field. Your heart swells along with hers on her journey. The narrator’s voice is melodic, and perfect for this prose.
A sad story of a Black & White romance in the impoverished tobacco fields of rural Kentucky. It’s the early 1960’s. Told in the first person by the young trapped heroin, Godpretty tends to be sad and, at times, painful to read. The story includes dirt poor neighbors, alcoholism, sadness, and coping. The story of their romance weaves through their childhood and late adolescence to getting out of the fields, seeking a life without the poverty found back home.
