Book Review -- Julie

It's book group week, and the following book was our selection for the month of May.

Julie Julie by Catherine Marshall

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Summary: Marshall, author of the classic Christy, drew on her life experiences for this coming-of-age story in which a young girl discovers herself and the strength of her faith.

Julie, is a heartwarming, coming of age story about the struggles a young lady encounters with her family in post-depression Pennsylvania. Julie's family purchase the small town's local newspaper, and in doing so, encounter financial, political, and faith-based, tests. Her father's chronic illness, propels Julie in to a position of leadership and responsibility at the newspaper. Her talent as an investigative reporter also uncovers devastating news about an improperly built dam, that will prove prophetic and catastrophic.

Juile was our book group selection for the month of May. It was a delightful read, reminiscent of the work of L. M. Montgomery.
