Book Review - "Gone South"

"Gone South," a brand-new novel by Meg Moseley, is a wonderful story to delve right into and get lost in.  Tish is a Yankee and proud of her ancestral roots.  Tish stops by the town where her great-great-great-grandparents lived in Alabama and sees that their former home is for sale.  Tish cannot resist this house and decides to settle here in this town.  However, suddenly Tish finds herself being the object of hate and rumors and she discovers that there may be things she does not know about her ancestors, ancestors dating back to the Civil War.  As Tish tries to settle into her new home and be accepted, she makes some unusual friends and tries to continue to be true to herself.

I really enjoyed this book!  I know you should not judge a book by it's cover, but I was immediately drawn to this book because of the cover!  I absolutely love the cover on this book, to me it is a great representation of a mix of the past and present and trying to find "home."  I loved the characters and how immersed in their lives I became while reading the story.  This is the first book I have read by this author and it will not be my last!
