Book Review~That Summer by Jo Huddleston

That Summer, by Joe Huddleston, is Book 1 of the Caney Creek Series.  The story takes place in Tennessee around the time of the Great Depression, and spans from the late 1920s to 1950.  Jim Callaway lives with his family on their farm, and times are bleak for them.  His father abuses him, and Jim decides at 17 years old to run away to the city.

That Summer follows Jim as he learns to survive on his own, falls in love, and falls away from his faith and God.  Jim has to learn many difficult lessons along the way to finding his way back to what he knows is right.

I thoroughly enjoyed That Summer.  Ms. Huddleston did a wonderful job of developing characters that I really felt a connection with.  The storyline flowed well, and it kept my attention throughout the book.  I look forward to reading the second and third books in the series, due out later in 2013.
