What Momma Left Behind ~ Cindy K. Sproles

This book takes place in 1877, Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee.  When Worie Dressar is left to take care of orphaned children after the community she has grown up in and still lives was hit by the flu that took most of her friends, family and town people.  She is determined to save these children from starvation and bringing them up, when she has to deal with two brothers that are bad news.  One is a drunk and the other one is only out for what he can get.  Can Worie save the children and her home?  Will she be able to forgive?  What will happen if you don't follow God and have faith.

I would recommend this to anyone that like to read a heartfelt historical read.  It was touching story that had forgiveness all through it.  It is a book that once you start reading you can't stop reading because you want to know what is going to happen.  As you read you think you know what the outcome is going to be and surprise it doesn't end the way you think it will.   A delightful read for any afternoon or evening read, just give yourself enough time to read the whole thing in one setting as you will need to know what happens.
