This Is Where It Ends by Cindy K. Sproles // Review

My Review: 
A touching tale of family and forgiveness, as secrets are unearthed deep in the Appalachian Mountains. 

94-year -old Minerva Jenkins has lived alone with her dead husband's secret for thirty years, until a young reporter comes to her cabin asking questions about gold gone missing over half a century ago. The memories stir up unwelcome parts of her past, but an unlikely friendship begins to form between the two as the past sifts to light.

A compelling novel with characters that will make you smile and bring you to tears, I loved the honesty in Minerva's narrative. She is a straightforward and practical woman, who made the best of what she had with a fierce mountain loyalty. Del is a kind man, with a boyishness about him, and I liked how he takes Minerva's teasing good naturedly and how protective he is of her. 

A beautiful novel of friendship and forgiveness, with a strong message of faith. A wholly enjoyable read, filled with faith, and wisdom. My heart went out to Minerva for all that she lived through, and I admired her resilience and the earnestness of her heart. An amazing read. Heartily recommend. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
