THE GOOD DREAM by Donna VanLiere (c) 2012. It’s 1950 in a small mountain town in Tennessee. Sarah Ivory Walker is a 30 year old spinster who’s mother just died leaving her alone in the world and she’s getting lonely so she allows herself to be courted by a lonely widower. Meanwhile a frightened, dirty-faced, little boy keeps stealing vegetables from her backyard garden. Ivory steps out of her comfort zone and is determined to find out where he lives in the hills surrounding the town. I feel bad for the small abused boy. Meanwhile the town is in an uproar over what Ivory is doing since they don’t want her to open up a can of worms, to let secrets stay secret. I’m REALLY enjoying this book! I feel bad for the poor, abused boy and can’t wait to see what happens even though I am rooting for a happy ending.
