Different Drummer

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions,perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." ~Henry David Thoreau

Angels on Morgan Hill

"Angels of Morgan Hill" by Donna VanLiere, a fictional book about a family in  Morgan Hill, Tennesee.  Jane's abusive and alcoholic father dies and a new  black family, the Turners move in near their farm.  Jane and her family have to make some far reaching decisions, that will affect their lives deeply.  Jane realizes that there are angels among us, helping us through each day.

The discussion on the book was divided.  Several in the group really liked the book, felt it was enjoyable reading, a nice feel good book.  Others felt that the characters were a little contrived, not quite believable, predictable in their behavior and not compelling reading.
