Read Review
Whistling Past The Graveyard
by Susan Crandall
fiction
From The Jacket:In the summer of 1963, nine-year-old Starla Claudelle runs away from her strict grandmother’s Mississippi home. Starla’s destination is Nashville, where her mother went to become a famous singer, abandoning Starla when she was three. Walking a lonely country road, Starla accepts a ride from Eula, a black woman traveling alone with a white baby. Now, on the road trip that will change her life forever, Starla sees for the first time life as it really is—as she reaches for a dream of how it could one day be.
I fell in love with Starla, the young protagonist of this wonderful story. She's feisty, loveable and will worm her way into your heart. If you enjoy southern literature as much as I do, I'm sure you'll find this a very satisfying read.
