Book Review * Saints of Swallow Hill by Donna Everhart

5 out of 5 stars     ~~ Book Review 

Donna Everhart knows how to capture the heart and mind of her reader from (practically) the first page.  Del and Rae Lynn couldn’t be two more different personalities, but the reader quickly empathizes or feels some affection (in the case of Dell) early on.  While Donna has her own unique voice she did remind me, at times, of a blended flavor reminiscent of One for the Blackbird, One for the Crow by Olivia Hawker, and Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. Lofty company, in my opinion.  

If you had told this reviewer she would be reading about ‘turpentiners’ next, I would have said, “Say what?”
It’s a fascinating, exciting story set during the Great Depression.  Desperate people using any idea just to survive with literally the shirt on their back and little else. 

If you don’t read another book this year, be certain you read Saints of Swallow Hill.  I highly recommend it!
