CFBA Book Spotlight: The Fence My Father Built by LInda S. Clare

My address has finally been straightened out so hopefully I'll have real reviews for you starting in November! Here's the scoop on The Fence My Father Built (yes that's an amazon link but it's not my associate link)

About the Book: When legally separated Muri Pond, a librarian, hauls her kids, teenager Nova and eleven year-old Truman, out to the tiny town of Murkee, Oregon, where her father, Joe Pond lived and died, she's confronted by a neighbor's harassment over water rights and Joe's legacy: a fence made from old oven doors.

The fence and accompanying house trailer horrify rebellious Nova, who runs away to the drug-infested streets of Seattle. Muri searches for her daughter and for something to believe in, all the while trying to save her inheritance from the conniving neighbor who calls her dad Chief Joseph.

Along with Joe's sister, Aunt Lutie, and the Red Rock Tabernacle Ladies, Muri must rediscover the faith her alcoholic dad never abandoned in order to reclaim her own spiritual path.

Disclosure: I received this book for review...but not until Sunday...not enough time to read it!

It really bums me out when you get a review book too late to hold up your end of the bargain. It throws my well-planned schedule just all to heck. The book sounds good anyway!

Sorry my book was late in arriving. Maybe this winter as you're snuggied (yes, snuggied!) up next to a cozy fire, you'll have a chance to read it. Blessings, Linda
