eBook Review Gal is participating in the “Honeysuckle Holiday” by Kathleen M. Jacobs during the My Book Tour virtual book tour. Below is the book review.
Lucy Moore grows up in the South during the 1960s. She lives a comfortable, privileged life with her mother, father and two sisters – until the day her father walks out of their lives in shame. Through a series of events, Lucy comes to learn the truth about her father – and herself. Honeysuckle Holiday begins in 1970 with Lucy Moores’ sister, Caroline, setting the stage for Lucy’s story. From there, we see things unfold through the eyes of Lucy throughout the remainder of the book.
Wow! The book description definitely does not do this wonderful book the justice it deserves. There is so much to this story, so I suppose it would be difficult to accurately describe it in just a paragraph.
The author has completely captured the complex and rapidly changing thoughts and feelings of young Lucy. With beautifully descriptive scenes, dialogue and storyline, readers come to know the complicated views of a privileged and sheltered white child, growing up in the South during the turbulent 1960s. The characters are so fully developed, relatable and truly appealing it’s easy to fall in love with them. I especially liked the way the author was able to show Lucy’s views as they changed along with her experiences.
I can’t say enough about this lovely, heartfelt book. It’s a story that will stay with me for a long time to come. Highly recommended! Thanks to JanCarol Publishing for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book!
