THAT SUMMER (Book 1 in the Caney Creek Series)
by Jo Huddleston
A Sweet Southern Romance
From the back cover:
The Great Depression brings devastation to the Southern Appalachians but love’s triangle survives.
To escape his poppa’s physical abuse and their dirt-poor farm life, Jim flees to an imagined prosperous city life where he can make his own choices, ignoring God patiently knocking on his heart’s door. Settled in town, Jim strays from God and the way of faith his momma taught him. He meets a girl and loses his heart … and meets another girl and loses his willpower. Jim wrestles with social and moral dilemmas as he makes a choice beside Caney Creek that will alter the lives of five people.
“That Summer is a wonderful romance set in the Southern Appalachians during the Great Depression. Jo Huddleston understands the people of that time and place so well she pulled me right into the story and didn’t let me go until the end. Highly recommended!”
