Heart wrenching and heart warming. J.C. Wing does a marvelous job, weaving a touching story of pain, struggle and growth, centered around the women in an odd family. The story is moving on so many levels, aided in Wing’s beautiful narrative and thoughtful character interactions. The plot meanders through what seems like rather ordinary circumstances around Greer, who is pregnant with a former flame’s child, Cheney who is dealing with multi-level emotional struggles over the death of her husband and the isolation of her life since her father left while she was a child.
This story is so well painted by Wing that you begin to see depth in your own life that you hadn’t noticed before. A rich mosaic of pain, love, suffering and joy, Alabama Skye is one of those stories that will remain with you long after you have closed the book.
I feel fortunate to have found this rare treasure among the Indy Author masses and hope to see much more from her, as she continues this story. Very well done. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys heart touching, women’s literary fiction. It is beautifully written.
