    Calling Home PDF/EPUB Ö Paperback calling kindle, home kindle, Calling Home EpubThis book contains some of the most vividly drawn real characters I've ever seen in fiction small town working class factory laborers and farmers in 1980 small town Kentucky too injured by the hard knocks of life to love without barbed wire fences built around their hearts and souls but nevertheless trying to do the best they can in spite of the damage These are people with few resources beyond their own grit for whom there are no magic rescues and every misstep in life seems to land them on a hidden mine heck sometimes the landmines just blow up even without t

    Calling Home PDF/EPUB Ö Paperback calling kindle, home kindle, Calling Home EpubFirst of all I have to admit that my reasons for choosing this book are VERY lame1 this chick and I have the same last name2 she is from Kentucky3 the book takes place hereLate '70's rural Kentucky There were many parts of this book that were not so different from my own growing up here in the late 80's alot can change in 10 yearsalot stays the sameIt was a nice easy read nothing to deep to think about probably great for sitting on the beach I tend to be really hard on authorsbooks and even though this one was delightful i knew where it was goingit didn't stop me from reading i

    Calling Home PDF/EPUB Ö Paperback calling kindle, home kindle, Calling Home EpubThis author's writing is very easy to read I lived in a small TN town for high school during the same time period I guess the nicest thing that I can say is that I feel sorry for the author that she perceived her world as such If you see men as uncontrollable animals and women as desperate without options then this is the book for youAs the mother to six sons I felt so sorry for the teenage boys in this book and really disliked the daughter as much as the mom by the end of the book We lived in a town that would have made this one look like a metropolis when my oldest was in her teens I raised her to believe that the world is her oyster This book is depressing and defeatist what a downer

    Calling Home PDF/EPUB Ö Paperback calling kindle, home kindle, Calling Home EpubI was hoping to review this one in my column this month but alas a few too many words and sticky situations I will probably finish it before The Godmother though Interesting sibling friendship difficult family relationships Set in rural KY The author already has me twanging in my head Great writing but an annoying voice to have to read with Finished it good story about people trying to do the right thing and failing as often as they succeed And just as often they don't try at all Set in the late 70s early 80s and if the main characters smoked any pot I think their brains would have shriveled up Again not my typical read
