That Summer

That Summer is the first book in the Caney Creek Series and I, for one, am looking forward to reading more titles in this series from author Jo Huddleston.

Jim is tired of farm life, but more than that he's tired of his father's abusive behavior and the weight of responsibility he feels for his younger siblings and his mother.

When the pressure is too tough, Jim packs up and leaves home with no concrete plans except a plan to make it work in the city.

He's hoping to build a life and eventually win the heart of Louisa, a pretty girl he met at a fair one summer before leaving home.

Located in the Southern Appalachians, Caney Creek is a bustling city to Jim, filled with opportunity. Unfortunately it's also filled with fierce competition for a coveted job at the Hosiery Mill, the leading employer in Sanford County. A job at the Hosiery offers Jim some level of security, until he catches the eye of the owner's daughter, Callie.

Louisa moves to the city to stay with her older sister just about the time things heat up with Callie. You won't even believe the twists and turns this story takes. It will keep you glued until the last page.

That Summer is a mix of love triangle, relational drama, and coming of age tale bubbling with heart and flowing with a message of hope, healing and forgiveness.

I highly recommend this book and can't wait to read more as the series continues.

You can purchase your copy on Amazon.
