    You could call this a coming of age novel and I would agree, but it's not a typical coming of age story. You could say that the ending is a little too pat, maybe even a little too predictable and I could agree with that . For me though, the important thing about this story is that I ...

    4 southern fiction stars to The Road to Bittersweet I enjoyed my time spent with Wallis Ann Stamper and her family. Set in the 1940s in both North and South Carolina, there was a flood in the Stampers? small mountain community at the start of the book that left me riveted. Wallis...

    A riveting piece of southern historical fiction! I love stories of Appalachia and the south in general. This is a story of hardship and survival through the eyes of Wallis Stamper. This is somewhat of a coming of age story as well. I loved the author's writing style which puts you in t...

    "It takes courage to find your way" This is true throughout this book. This story takes place in the 1940's in the Appalachian Mountains. The Stampers live on the river and lead a simple life, until a hurricane destroys their home as the flood waters rise. They are forced to leave. Thi...

    Donna Everhart takes readers to Stampers Creek, 1940 North Carolina along the Tuckasegee River with the Stampers family. THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET ?a gritty Southern tale of despair, family, and hope. A perfect and fitting title for this coming-of-age journey through life's ups and dow...

    After reading The Education of Dixie Dupree, I knew I'd be reading Donna Everhart's next novel, but I didn't expect to have the pleasure of reading her second book this year. (I'm an Outlander fan, so I'm accustomed to waiting four years-ish for a new novel from an author I love.) Need...
