About Pepper Basham
There is something about a Pepper Basham book that gives you all the feels. I had the privilege of proofing this book as I ended my first editing course so it will hold a very special place for me.
The feuding in this book makes the Hatfields and McCoy's look like child's play.
Everything about this book was spot on. The setting, Appalachian diction, the historical fact, and most of all the way Ms. Basham wove in faith in God.
I adored everything about this book so I can't just point out one specific thing. I loved how Ava and Jeremiah's sweet love story rose above the crime revolving around them.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes.
Bitterness is a wicked poison. Fogs up the head and sickens the heart till folks call wrong right and right wrong.
God ain't sittin' up in heaven watchin' a show down here on earth. He don't mind gettin' His hands dirty. Else, He'd never sent the Savior. ~Granny Burcham
