- Another wonderful book by Brandilyn Collins by Ramona on 3/2/2016
Cast a Road Before Me is the first in the Bradleyville Series by Ms. Collins. As with all her novels, I am amazed with her talent as an author. She continues to pen page turning novels in lightening speed. For that I am thankful.
"A course-changing event in one's life can happen in minutes. Or it can form slowly, a primitive webbing splaying into fingers of discontent, a minuscule trail hardening into the sinewed spine of resentment. So it was with the mill workers as the heat-soaked days of summer marched on..." ---------- City girl Jessie, orphaned at sixteen, struggles to adjust to life with her barely known aunt and uncle in the tiny town of Bradleyville, Kentucky. Eight years later (1968) she plans on leaving—to following in her revered mother's footsteps of serving the homeless. But the peaceful town she's come to love is about to be tragically shattered. Threats of a labor strike rumble through the streets, and Jessie's new love and her uncle are swept into the maelstrom. Caught between the pacifist teachings of her mother and these two men, Jessie desperately tries to deny that Bradleyville is rolling toward violence and destruction. Taken from Amazon.com.
Wow, what will she do? Will Jessie try to live life in “peace” as her mother instructed her to do? Can she live up to her other’s legacy? What if a sudden love clouds some of her thinking? Can she still return to her hometown and live her mother’s legacy or will she remain in Bradleyville and live the quiet town life?
Pick this book up. Not only will you be intrigued with this story, but you (as I did) will want to purchase the second book in this series. You will not be disappointed with Ms. Collins Cast a Road Before Me.
