Step into True Colors — a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime

Widowed in Memphis during 1932, Cecile Dowd is struggling to provide for her three-year-old daughter.

With the help of a sympathetic lawyer, the search for Millie uncovers a deep level of corruption that threatens their very lives.

My Review:

My Rating: 4 stars.

My Thoughts: WOW!!! I am heart broken by this story!

While I enjoy historical fiction this one is based on true stories, and this is one scary story. Kids just disappearing from their homes? Yeah, I had no idea that it had been so bad during the Great Depression. The blurb doesn’t even begin to show the true horror in this book, yes, it’s about a mother searching for her kidnapped daughter but it’s so much more. It’s about standing up even when it doesn’t feel like you can, it’s about trusting God to bring you peace, in all this was a dark story that ended with hope.

Since it is dark I suggest that 17 up read it with caution, and 16 can possibly read it if someone that you trust screens it first. It is a very insightful story of a dark time in the not too distant past and things like this do happen still.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
