This book was a little hard to get into at first and yet strangely I could not put it down We first meet Velva Jean when she is 10 years old and watch as she grows older marries and has to make a decision about pursuing her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry I had to really get myself into the right frame of mind for this book It takes place in the early 1930s and continues into the early 40s So there were a lot of things that I was shaking my head over I couldn t believe that it was unseemly for women to drive cars I had never actually heard that before and would have smacked my husband if he tried to tell me I couldn t drive a car But things like this were a part of every day life for Velva Jean This just makes her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry that much difficult to achieve This was a time where women were supposed to marry have children and take care of the family and house hold and be happy with it The story did pull me in and I loved the cast of characters you meet like her brother Johnny Clay the wood carver who is supposed to be some sort of crazy half animal murderer and Sweet Fern her sister who has to put her own life on hold in order to take care of her brothers and sister after their mother dies and their father leaves home Velva Jean s character often struck me as immature but then I would have to remind myself that she is not even 18 years old yet through most of the book so then I would find myself feeling sorry for her The ending wraps up uite nicely with her learning the true reason her father left home and we finally learn the decision she makes whether to pursue her dream or pursue the love she has for Harley
