A Month of Sundays by Ruth White

The year is 1957. The place is Black River, VA. Her mother leaves fourteen year old April Garnet Rose with her father's relatives while she goes to Florida to find work. Garnet joins her aunt June Bill on her search for God. They attend a different church every Sunday and experience many unusual things. On her Aunt June's search for God, Garnet begins to discover herself. An unforgettable summer turns into a life changing experience.

What I thought: I really liked this book. The regional flavor is just right. The characters were all likable and believable. I wonder what inspired Ruth White to write A Month of Sundays. Maybe there will be more books about Garnet.
