Kinfolk by Sean Dietrich // Review

My Review:

A gritty and heartwarming southern tale of family from Sean Dietrich. 

An engaging feel-good tale of friendship and family, in 1970's Alabama. Nub Taylor is the last person anyone would have figured on befriending the six foot five fifteen year old pregnant Minnie, with his history of letting people down and run-ins with the law. But though they may seem an odd duo, Minnie and Nub are just what the other needs in this heartwarming Southern read. 

A riveting read with a full cast of colorful characters, strong themes of family, friendship, and forgiveness. I loved seeing how Nub and Minnie changed each other for the better, helping each other reconnect with family, and finding the confidence to blaze new trails.  

Mr. Deitrich richly captures honest characters, in a way that feels larger than life, yet realistic and gritty at the same time. His books have an excellent sense of time and place, and each one has been better than the last. Definitely, recommend. 

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