This was an absolutely amazing book. I usually enjoy reading historical fiction that takes place in England, but I really enjoyed this look back into what rural Arkansas was like.
I could kind of relate to the characters in away since my family are farmers, but the differences astounded me in relation to modern times vs the fifties. For one the prices blow me away! A nickel for a bowl of ice cream! Unheard of. Especially since gas is almost five dollars a gallon now!
