Appalachian Justice
Growing up in depression-era West Virginia was hard; no one knew that better than fourteen-year-old Billy May Platte. Her father a victim of the mines, her mother dead from cancer, Billy May relied on the kindness of the residents of the tiny mining town of Cedar Hollow to see her through. But the events of one terrible night in 1945 changed all that.

Appalachian Justice by Melinda Clayton

Wow! What a beautifully written story. Once I got used to the Appalachian prose I was totally there on Crutcher Mountain beside Billy May. Melinda grabs you by your heart and leads you through the life and times of Billy May Platte and doesn't let you go.

This is a poignant and totally engrossing story with well developed characters that will break your heart and then heal it, leaving memories that are not truly your own. Billy May's story and strength of character will stay with me forever. I highly recommend this book.

I also recommend you read BigAl’s review for this book at Books and Pals.
