"Gone South" by Meg Moseley

Noble, Alabama, a southern town with all the charm and rich history Tish McComb would expect. But there is another side of Noble, a cold and angry side. How will Tish deal with feeling unwelcome and unwanted?

Tish was ready for a new start. Her life plans had been changed by tragedy five years earlier, and it was time to move on. What better way than to buy an old family home in Alabama and leave, Michigan and its ghosts, behind? What she didn't know is that there was a history that left the McComb family unwelcome in Noble, but the townspeople let her know that quickly. Time for a new plan! She has one "friend" - George Zorbas - and decides to take in a troubled youngster, Melanie. Will things go from bad to worse, or will Tish be able to show God's love and mercy through her actions and words? Can Tish and the people of the town find a way to make a fresh start and mend fences? 

This is a wonderfully written book full of rich characters and images. The story draws in the reader and sweeps you into the old South. I recommend it to readers of all types and think book groups would have fun discussing the topics presented (such as: second chances, judging others, forgiveness, mercy, etc.). I received my free review copy from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.
