Judy Christie's The Glory of Green ~ Reviewed
The Glory of Green
By Judy Christie
Published by Abingdon Press
Small-town journalist Lois Barker expects her wedding day to make headlines, but little does she know what a historic day it will turn out to be.
Grace and tragedy unfold in Lois Barker's third year in Green, Alabama, as wedding plans are underway!
While Lois tries to get rid of her groom-to-be's catfish collection, he's giving up his homestead to a needy Mexican family at their church.
As usual life explodes with possibilities for Lois Barker in Green and her trust in God is being tested.
Once again, Christie draws her readers in to the town, the life, the humor, and the drama in Green. I felt like I was visiting old friends in my hometown. Warm, funny, and nostalgic, The Glory of Green is a wonderful narrative of small town America, pulling together in tragedy. A great read! Novel Journey and I give it a high recommendation.
