Glory Road by Lauren K Denton

This novel is a satisfying one of southern life. The narrative weaves around the lives of three generations of women. Middle aged Jessie runs a garden store. Her elderly mother is a widow and lives next door. She's known for her amazing cobblers, pies and other baked goods. Evan is Jessie's fourteen year old daughter, making her way as she will soon enter high school.

This is a touching story of family and friendships and love. We get to know these women well as Denton has done a good job of developing their characters. The story is told in three points of view so we are privy to the opinions and dreams of each of the women. There is potential romance but many pitfalls along the way. The bonds of family love are strong.

This is a good novel for readers who like women's fiction. It would be best if one has an interest in plants and gardening as there is much of it in the story.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
