Book Review: “Grace Among the Leavings” by Beverly Fisher

 

Clarksville Book ReviewClarksville, TN – “Ms. Grace, you ask hard questions.”

The little girl living on a farm in rural Sumner County, Tennessee does ask hard questions.  Innocent and inquisitive, Grace lives in a world where the Civil War has just ended and the devastated South is entering Reconstruction.  Grace directly questions why she is surrounded by death and suffering.

Her grandmother tells Grace, “I want you to not think of the evil in this world, honey, because there is plenty of that. You don’t have to look too hard or far for that.  Look for the good.  Be the good.”
