My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Bette Lee Crosby is an author whose books belong on the Hallmark Channel. They touch your heart in ways many authors can only dream to do. Her characters are ones you read about in the news but she takes their stories - binds, blends and creates a masterpiece.
We meet Ethan again from Spare Change (the first book I read by Bette Lee Crosby). While his life has settled down, we meet Paul and Jubilee who are two orphans who are in need of more than a roof over their heads. The raw emotion that comes from Paul and Jubilee's situation can make the strongest of us teary-eyed.
Great prose, wonderful descriptions and highly developed characters are only some of the reasons I would highly recommend this book. Whether you are reading it in the States or in the UK, it also offers a good perspective as to how society and economy changes can affect children without many realising it.
