About Tommie Lyn

Tommie Lyn grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia immersed in firelight whispers. She listened spellbound as older generations spun chilling tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural. And sometimes, they even used the word "murder."

She carries on the tradition of her kinfolk, the storytelling magic guaranteed to rob hours of sleep and make the night come alive. Only the brave dare step into her world to listen. And sometimes, the voices still whisper...

This story captures the time in a young girl's life when she has one foot over the threshold of womanhood. A well written story with genuine characters who evoke familiar emotions from the past. I'll be keeping this on my virtual bookshelf for the smile that's guaranteed when I reach the ending!

Review by: Cecilia Pulliam on Oct. 30, 2011 :
Tommie Lynn has crafted a heartwarming story set in another century, but still relevant today to both the young women on the brink of stepping from childhood to being a young adult and for the adults who remember their first pair of hose, first set of heels and the first time their mothers allowed them to wear lipstick. The dimity dress represents all of those things and is a timeless story.

Review by: George McVey on Oct. 16, 2011 :
This is a cute coming of age story set in america in the late 1800's. Often funny and at times serious you can get lost in a girl on the cusp of becoming a woman's story. I think if you have a half-hour or so to kill and want a feel good quick read then this is the story for you. Not to spoil anything but the ending will make you want to stand and offer this young lady your seat in church. Oh and you might chuckle the whole time your doing so.
