Sadie Blue has been a wife for fifteen days. That's long enough to know she never should have hitched herself to Roy Tupkin, even with the baby. Sadie is desperate to make her own mark on the world, but in remote Appalachia, a ticket out of town is hard to come by, and hope often gets stomped out. When a stranger comes up the mountain and knocks things off-kilter, Sadie finds herself with an unexpected lifeline. She'll need all the pluck and courage she can muster to figure out how to use it.

Really interesting debut about living in Appalachia. Great story.

Set in 1970 Appalachia, we're introduced to a small community of characters who really give you a feel for their hard lives. Each chapter is from a different character - totaling 10 different POVs. Also, some incidents were retold from different perspectives. This took some getting used to. Every time I got to a new chapter and saw a new name for the title, I groaned. But each character pulled me into their story and they all tied together around Sadie Blue and helping her survive her miserable excuse of a husband. In general, a good story. Just not a fan of the style in which it was told and it had kind of an abrupt ending.
