Book Review #95 - Gone South By Meg Moseley

Synopsis:


The charm of the South drew her back to her family’s roots. But when the town’s old resentments turn the sweet tea bitter, can Tish find a welcome anywhere?

Leaving frosty Michigan for the Deep South was never a blip in the simple plans Tish McComb imagined for her life, dreams of marriage and family that were dashed five years earlier in a tragic accident. Now an opportunity to buy her great-great-great-grandparents’ Civil War era home beckons Tish to Noble, Alabama, a Southern town in every sense of the word. She wonders if God has given her a new dream— the old house filled with friends, her vintage percolator bubbling on the sideboard.

When Tish discovers that McCombs aren’t welcome in town, she feels like a Yankee behind enemy lines. Only local antiques dealer George Zorbas seems willing to give her a chance. What’s a lonely outcast to do but take in Noble’s resident prodigal, Melanie Hamilton, and hope that the two can find some much needed acceptance in each other.

Problem is, old habits die hard, and Mel is quite set in her destructive ways. With Melanie blocked from going home, Tish must try to manage her incorrigible houseguest as she attempts to prove her own worth in a town that seems to have forgotten that every sinner needs God-given mercy, love and forgiveness.



My Take On This Book:

Gone South a novel by Meg Moseley was a great read. It is about new beginnings, love and forgiveness. Tish McComb buys her great-great-great-grandparents’ Civil War era home in Noble Alabama. Tish moves south expecting warm southern hospitality, but the southerners do not fulfill her expectations, they make it very clear to Tish that McComb’s are not welcome in their town.

I enjoyed Tish's courage in dealing with her resentful neighbors, and her compassion toward Melanie was a lesson to all. George's quiet intelligence shone through quite well in the story. In Gone South, Meg spins a great story of prodigals and prejudices and of a courageous young woman who refuses to take the easy way out.

I received a free copy of this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.

I gave it *****
