The Forgiving Kind
Paperback, 352 pages
Published January 29th 2019 by Kensington
For twelve-year-old Martha “Sonny” Creech, there is no place more beautiful than her family’s cotton farm. She, her two brothers, and her parents work hard on their land—hoeing, planting, picking—but only Sonny loves the rich, dark earth the way her father does. When a tragic accident claims his life, her stricken family struggles to fend off ruin—until their rich, reclusive neighbor offers to help finance that year’s cotton crop.
Sonny is dismayed when her mama accepts Frank Fowler’s offer; even more so when Sonny’s best friend, Daniel, points out that the man has ulterior motives. Sonny has a talent for divining water—an ability she shared with her father and earns her the hated nickname “water witch” in school. But uncanny as that skill may be, it won’t be enough to offset Mr. Fowler’s disturbing influence in her world. Even her bond with Daniel begins to collapse under the weight of Mr. Fowler’s bigoted taunts. Though she tries to bury her misgivings for the sake of her mama’s happiness, Sonny doesn’t need a willow branch to divine that a reckoning is coming, bringing with it heartache, violence—and perhaps, a fitting and surprising measure of justice.
Miss W’s Review:
The Forgiving Kind is an emotion coming of age story that is set in the 1950’s in the South.
The characters were well developed . I enjoyed reading about Sonny and her entire story.
The story writing was so detailed and descriptive the characters and the story popped off the pages, which I read a fast pace. I especially enjoyed the dialogue written between the characters.
This is a story that made me happy, sad, cry , and angry all at the same time. It was a wonderful journey and I highly recommend this book.About the Author:
