I’m almost done reading this very sweet novel by Carolyn Brown. It’s a story involving multiple generations. Here’s how the story begins:
There are no secrets in Hickory, Texas—except for whatever was between Seth Thomas, Jesse Grady, and Tandy Massey. And since they were now in their early eighties, it might be that they’d take that secret to the grave with them. Usually Emmy Jo Massey’s grandmother, Tandy, laughed off rumors, but that night she was doing a tap dance on her soapbox,
“Over my damn dead body.” Tandy shook a wooden spoon at her great-granddaughter. “You are not going to work for Seth Thomas in any form or fashion, and I mean it. And you damn sure are not going to live in that house.”
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
