To See a Sundog: Rural Small-Town Adventure
“The town of Sawhill, Missouri, is like a mobile that gently swings back and forth, and on most days, it swings in harmony, but when one side of the mobile tips and bends, the whole town tips and bends with it.” The Blexley and Bradley families in this novel, placed in 1952 rural America, share struggles and difficulties and, after disastrous events occur, begin to see life differently, and start to make important changes in their lives. The novel gives a realistic depiction of rural farm life, its joys and hardships, and brings together very interesting and diverse characters who live and work together for the good of the community. It is a heart-warming story filled with surprises that keep you reading, and presents a very satisfied ending.
