I really enjoyed this southern story by author Meg Moseley. Tish McCombs’ life takes an unexpected turn when she loses her father, husband, and her mother remarries and moves away. Tish could move closer to her mother, but that’s not exactly what she wants, though she is really not sure what it is she wants with her life. When she decides to go a round about way home from visiting her mom in Florida, Tish ends up in Noble, Alabama to the home of her great-great-great-grandparents because it is for sale. Never did she think she would purchase this old family home, but that is just what she did. But after moving there, neighbors wasn’t as friendly as Tish expected them to be, leaving Tish puzzled at what was going on.
I have to say I enjoyed Meg Moseley’s second book just as much as her first one! When Sparrows Fall was my very first book I read and reviewed, so it will always be special for me. And I have been waiting for Meg’s second book ever since, and Gone South was well worth the wait. I love the way Meg weaves together the difficult situations Tish had to face, with her faith in God to help her through those rough times. Tish and the rest of the characters were so well developed I grew to love each one of them, and sometimes I felt as though I was living the story along with them. And the way Tish treated Melanie Hamilton is a good example of how God gives us second, and third, and more chances in our Christian life.
