I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
Meg Moseley's fish out of water story Gone South is a great gentle fiction read. I haven't had a lot of time for fiction lately so I was excited to delve into this book with any stolen moments I could find. I quickly found myself drawn into the story of Tish. Tish is a Yankee with southern family ties. She finds herself buying a home that once belonged to her ancestors in Alabama. While Tish is excited for the huge change in her life she finds the south isn't always so sweet.
Moseley does a great job of developing the characters and slowly drawing out their stories. Tish, Mel, George, and Calv are all endearing characters. I love that the story wasn't fake. It all seemed very viable. I was also pleased that every character didn't become a saint in the end. We all know that real life doesn't work that way and I tend to feel a bit frustrated when stories wrap up with everyone smelling like roses.
If you are looking for a good summer read, check out Meg Moseley's Gone South. I think you will find it charming, true, and engaging.
