mourning dove Title: Mourning Dove  
Author: Claire Fullerton
Publisher: Firefly Southern Fiction  
Release Date: June 29, 2018  
Genre: Southern Fiction, Family Life  

"An accurate and heart-wrenching picture of the sensibilities of the American South." Kirkus Book Reviews

The heart has a home when it has an ally.

If Millie Crossan doesn't know anything else, she knows this one truth simply because her brother Finley grew up beside her. Charismatic Finley, eighteen months her senior, becomes Millie's guide when their mother Posey leaves their father and moves her children from Minnesota to Memphis shortly after Millie's tenth birthday.

Memphis is a world foreign to Millie and Finley. This is the 1970s Memphis, the genteel world of their mother's upbringing and vastly different from anything they've ever known. Here they are the outsiders. Here, they only have each other. And here, as the years fold over themselves, they mature in a manicured Southern culture where they learn firsthand that much of what glitters isn't gold. Nuance, tradition, and Southern eccentrics flavor Millie and Finley's world as they find their way to belonging.

But what hidden variables take their shared history to leave both brother and sister at such disparate ends?

My Thoughts and Review:

The book started out slow and I thought I wasn't going to get through the book. Ohh, how I was WRONG. Chapter 3 things started to pick up and I got really into the storyline and book.

I at first was taken aback about "Family Drama" in this book. I continued to read and be intrigued, as this is REAL life with many families nowadays. The love between Brother and Sister grows as they learn they need to "lean on one another" as they encounter trials and tribulations of life.

Mourning Dove is a book that proves time and time again that once you get into the thick of the book, it is HARD to put it down.

Book Rating: 
I give Mourning Dove 4 out of 5 Stars. Good book, yet slow at the start.
