Tobacco Sun, by Lorna Hollifield, was sent to me by Pen Name Publishing. It left me with both happiness and sadness for the characters. In the post-war years after World War II, Tobaccoville, North Carolina, like much of the rural United States, was a poverty-stricken area. Many found ways to leave to ensure a financially secure future. Many stayed.
Hollywood starlet, Sydra Parramore, was one who left. Her sister, Jimmi-Lyn, stayed. Shell-shocked Vanse Newland returned from the war to Tobaccoville. Tobacco Sun is a story of redemption, but life will never be the same for any of them. To read my review, click right here. If you enjoy Southern fiction,
