Gone South Book Review

Gone South

Gone South by Meg Moseley is a delightful story about two women who have to face the past to enjoy the future.

Northerner Tish McComb knows the sting of rejection. When she moves into the Alabama family homestead, her neighbors shun her because her third great-grandparents were carpetbaggers. That's why she offers a fellow outsider---and the prodigal daughter of an influential citizen---a room. But the wayward girl refuses to reform. Should Tish challenge her houseguest---and her father?(CBD)

I had no idea what to expect with this novel. I enjoy historical fiction but this contemporary fiction surprised me. The characters are very likable and realistic along with the hardships that follow them. Tish McComb is my favorite simply because of her unending kindness to Melonie, a young girl who is not allowed home. To Tish's surprise her family history is not all that it's made out to be and is judged by being a descendent. While both women are surrounded by judgement from the past, they both learn to overcome that and push on into a new future.

I loved how the story flowed and the ended was as expected. This is a sweet simple story that I think many will enjoy!
 This book releases May 7th!
