About this author
Sherri writes character driven stories and this one is no different. Lydia and Hamilton lead the story, Lydia a little more than Hamilton. Lydia is use to living as a debutant all of that changes when a freeze hits and kills the crops, and then a fire burns down her childhood home killing her mother and best friend, Izzy. The family moves to Georgia where they learn very quickly that the people of Georgia are still very much segregated and for Lydia who just sees a person not color, or standing in the community struggles. She longs to find something to do besides taking care of Hamilton and their home.
Lydia and Hamilton are a lot like Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler in their demeanor. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I was up late each night reading. Sherri shows that good comes to those who wait and that following the lead of your husband reaps rewards beyond your imagination.
I highly recommend it!
