Old Souls Inn

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
It’s the 1950s and young Rosa Farmer can’t understand why her father went to all the trouble to dig a bomb shelter in their yard and then permitted a bomb of gargantuan proportion to fall on their family. Old Souls Inn is a literary fiction story about forgiveness and redemption, prejudice and discrimination, saints and sinners—and what it takes to truly become an “old soul.”

About Patricia Allwood

A writer loves words...
the smell of books...
the image of a child, legs folded, on a crazy quilt,
under a tree,
in deep shade on a summer's afternoon
reading....
For writers read...and read...and read.

A mother loves words...
"I love you."
"Mom, see me, see me."
"Can you help me?"
"Car keys?"
"Come hear the lungs your new grandchild has."

A teacher loves words...
"I don't understand; say that again."
"I didn't know I could write like that."
"Now I get it!"

And God loves words...
So much He spoke and the world popped.
God wraps Himself in words--yours and mine...
An audience of One.

Review by: Barb Hill on Dec. 11, 2011 : (no rating)
I grew up in the 40's and 50's and rode the Frisco Sunnyland every summer from St. Louis to Sikeston. So I thought - this will be interesting just because it takes place in an area with which I am familiar (or so I thought). Little did I know how engrossed I would become in the lives of the characters in this book and the unexpected happenings that were just around the bend. A very good read - most enjoyable. Very good life lessons. I look forward to this author's next book!

Review by: Carol Heitman on Aug. 21, 2011 :
As an individual who reads several books a week, I found Old Souls Inn to be the best book I've read all year. Since I read some of the most popular authors published today, this places this book in the midst of some very good works of fiction and talented authors. Even in an environment of that level of competition, Old Souls Inn takes the prize. The characters are so powerfully believable that you open your heart to them as you read. As you finish the last chapter you realize their position in your heart has transformed you while you read. I found myself ending the book and hoping there is a sequel so I can re-visit these heartfelt friends again.
