Five O'Clock Whistle by Mercer Addison
From beginning to end this author has your emotions yanked in all directions. As I was reading the book, I could hear my voice speaking with that southernness to it. I was literally pulled into the book. I became Mae and I could hear, feel, smell, every descriptive scene in this book...Thank you to the Author for giving me a grand adventure from a history I wish had more of.
