If she tells her secret everyone will know what she’s done… But Valentine is the kind of town where everyone wants to live and answers come from the darnedest places sometimes.
Little Town, Great Big Life by Curtiss Ann Matlock is a fabulous read for all readers. Inspiring and up lifting it brings just a little bit of relief from this rat race world. Oh, to have such a simple life… The multitude of characters are well developed and well written. While the points of view jump around quite a bit it isn’t too distracting and you are sucked in to each life...but be warned there are many points of view. The story leaves a few questions unanswered but I think that is intentional. Little Town, Great Big Life is highly recommended.
