Publisher's Summary

In the face of overwhelming obstacles, she’ll need courage, grit, and a tender heart.

Worie Dressar is 17 years old when influenza and typhoid ravage her Appalachian Mountain community in 1877, leaving behind a growing number of orphaned children with no way to care for themselves. Worie’s mother has been secretly feeding several of these little ones on Sourwood Mountain. But when tragedy strikes, Worie is left to figure out why and how she was caring for them.

Plagued with two good-for-nothing brothers - one greedy and the other a drunkard - Worie must fight to save her home and the children now in her begrudging care. Along the way, she discovers the beauty of unconditional love and the power of forgiveness as she cares for all of Momma’s children.

Good to the end!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Characters with moral character. Deep family ties. Struggles. I hope to find more books by this author. Great narrator too.

Wonderful book

Cindy K Sproles wrote a tender and realistic story, she has the voice of the area down pat with all the regional color. Her prose is delicious and the story will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Erica Sullivan did a masterful job getting the accent perfect . What a wonderful audio book, I can’t wait for the next one!

This author is great! I also read Mercy's Rain. Her stories are so DEEP spiritually & emotionally. I love the scripture & biblical teachings mixed perfectly into the stories.
