I highly recommend this heartwarming historical novel about two girls from very different backgrounds who, after suffering a common tragedy, come together to help each other out, eventually becoming the best of friends. Although labeled as an adult book, I think this novel would have the most appeal to teenagers, because of the young characters. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series and finding out what happens to Mayme and Katie next.
Together both of the girls do whatever they can to stay safe as they hide out in the plantation once owned by Katie's family. In this story of survival, both of them grow in a new truth and faith in God. It is God who speaks to Mayme and she talks to him and listen to what He tells her to do. The two vow to keep things that have happened secret and manage things with God's help. When the girls come of age, they live together with Katie taking over the plantation. Through all the strengths and skills they reconstruct their lives by the mercy and grace of God. It was an amazing story of triumphant over bad circumstances. It encouraged me that no matter if you left alone in a dark world you can make it with the help of an Almighty and loving God. So you can grow and make a life for yourself. No matter the odds, you can stand against anything when you got God on your side.
The book opens during the turbulent times preceding the civil war. As the story continues, Katie's life is shaken up when her father and three older brothers go off to fight with the Confederate Army. Things seem to be going from bad to worse, but as the war comes to a close things start looking up for the Clairborne family. That is until a violent and tragic series of events take place and life on both plantations is forever changed. As a result of these events, the paths of these two very different young girls cross and the story of their relationship unfolds. Katie is a dreamer, but the realities of life are forcing her to grow up fast. Mayme has always had a hard life and as a result she seems to be afraid to dream at all. Although the two girls have seemingly opposite worldviews, they are the perfect compliment for one another as they face the difficult challenges that lie ahead. Along the way the two girls begin to develop a personal relationship with God.
Some readers will be turned off by Mayme's acceptance of her role as slave. In spite of her youth, she has had enough experiences to break her spirit to the point where she is afraid to hope for more. Katie's hopefulness can in part be attributed to the fact that she is naïve and comes from a privileged background. Through the story readers are taken on a journey during which the two learn about the harsh realities of life, slavery, God, and one another's culture.
