Gone South

Tish McComb leaves her life in Michigan and buys a home in Alabama.  This house was once owned by her great-great-grandparents, Nathan and Latisha McComb for whom she is named after.  By moving to a new town, Tish is trying to rebuild her life after the tragic death of her fiance.  However, the people of this small town still remember her ancestors, and they do not take kindly to strangers or to what the McComb family did.  Is the past truly in the past or does it affect those living in the present?  Tish is about to find out.

Like the cadence of a southern drawl, the story line was slow and deliberate.  At times, it was too slow.  I got bored about 200 pages into the story, and it was 300 before the truth comes out.  It was not a bad story, just one that took too long to develop.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.  Visit the author's website here.
