A Favorite

I love to read. Sometimes books are predictable and can be ho-hum and disappointing. Not so this one. A wonderfully written story with interesting characters and places. You live with them from beginning to end. Just excellent!

Execellent story

This book was written so well! It pulls you in from page one and you can't put it down. I shared with my mother who loved it aswell as a few friends. Great read.

A stroy of true love no matter who you are.

Thirteen year old Jubie Watts lives in a time of racial division. Jubie's family along with her black maid, take a car trip across to Florida and the experiences she encounters not only tear at her heart but will tear yours as well. There is a lot of love in this story that will last a long time within you as you read about about Jubie's journey with Mary. Thank you, Anna Jean Mayhew, for sharing your talent with all of us. I look forward to reading more of your work.
