This is a very quick read that can be read at any time of the year. Blossom and her family are moving to Texas to improve themselves. Blossom is a newspaper writer that wants to get her big story. She does not know that it will happen for her in a small town on their way to a new life. Blossom learns that she is stronger than she thinks as she helps another family. This is very emotional and inspirational. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a four out of five stars.
