What Momma Left Behind Review


My Review

Make no mistake, life in the Appalachian mountains is not easy in 1877. I loved seeing the dialect true to the time and place. You really can feel yourself immersed in the poverty-stricken Appalachia with the author's excellent descriptions .

As a mother of many I loved seeing the love and devotion Worie has for the needy and neglected children who have about given up hope. Through the darkness a light shines and hope is found where only despair lived before.

Amazing book, first I've read by this author and I look forward

to reading more by her. This book will be remembered for a long time. Published June 2nd 2020 by Fleming H. Revell Company I was given a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you. All opinions expressed are my own.

GoodReads Summary

Worie Dressar is seventeen years old when influenza and dysentery ravage her Appalachian Mountain community in 1898, leaving behind a growing number of orphaned children with no way to care for themselves. Worie's mother has been secretly feeding a number of these little ones on Sourwood Mountain. But when she dies suddenly, Worie is left to figure out why and how she was caring for them. Plagued with two good-for-nothing brothers--one greedy and the other a drunkard--Worie fights to save her home and the orphaned children now in her begrudging care. Along the way, she will discover the beauty of unconditional love and the power of forgiveness as she cares for all of Momma's children. Storyteller and popular speaker Cindy K. Sproles pens a tender novel full of sacrifice, heartache, and courage in the face of overwhelming obstacles.
