Scent of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart ~ Book Review
This was such a perfect summer read. It is lovely story building and meandering through the lives of this family during the summer of 1964. I love stories set in this time period and I thought the author captured small town living and attitudes of the time wonderfully. Jocie is a fun, inquisitive, spiritual young girl who draws you into her world and her hopes. All the characters are wonderful from Jocie to her Father with his strong faith in spite of all that has happened to her scripture quoting aunt to her father's quirky friend and co-worker Wes. The secrets they all are hiding are woven together into a story of faith, love and family that I really enjoyed. Looking forward to the second book continuing the story.
I gave this a 9/10.
