I love books, I love book blogging, and I hate GoodReads. Check out my blog at http://gossamerobsessions.blogspot.ca.
The Plot: Mary Bet, born in North Carolina at the turn of the 20th century, outlives her mother and her 8 other siblings. Her childhood of constant grief leaves her unwilling to take very many chances or risk important attachments. As she grows up, however, she learns more about the people around her, her community, and her ability to love.
