Jill Smith Entrekin is a wonderful storyteller! This character-driven novel tells the coming-of-age story of two sister in Flintville, Georgia in the 1960s. Alison (Allie) Sinclair is a ten-year old outspoken tomboy, whereas her sister Cecelia (Cece) is a pretty fourteen year-old teen who is sensitive and has the talent for painting. The sisters are close, and their relationship cements as the years go by and they experience their share of grief and loss. It's a book that celebrates sisterhood and family. I really loved this theme in the story.
This author's debut is a great and promising start. She can sure spin a wonderful story! If you love Southern tales this one will definitely please.
I will count this book toward the following challenge: What's in a Name 5
