The Melody of the Mulberries By Tonya Jewel Blessing

I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s first book, The Whispering in the Willows and was excited to see her second book. It is a delightful continuance the previous book. Appalachian culture and life style has always fascinated me. Ms. Blessing not only gives insight into this, but also into the minds and thinking of the people. One particular subject is the superstitions and mysticism that is so prevalent. I liked the strong biblical strength of the main characters as the not only relied on God but tried to share His truths with their neighbors. Their continuous focus on the Lord was an example and encouragement in relationships, and misunderstandings. I was impressed with how she handled prejudice and racism, showing how God’s love can overcome. I am looking forward to Tonya’s next book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance Federal Trade Commission’s CFR Title 16, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
