...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.

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!
