Summer Reading Review-Where Willows Grow

I had read another book by this author, Kim Vogel Sawyer, and really wanted to try another one because her book Waiting on Summer's Return was really good. Where Willows Grow was a very different book than her previous one. It was still very good though. The book is about Harley and Anna Mae Phipps who own family land that they farm in Kansas. The farming year had been really bad because they were in a drought. Harley decides to go off and get a job working on a castle that is being build. He ask his neighbor, Jack to watch over his family while he is gone. Jack was a good friend of Anna Mae, he even had asked her to marry him but she had fallen in love with her father's hired man. Jack plans to get Anna Mae back while Harley is gone. He does this in a very bad way and Anna Mae and Harley never get each others letters. There are many more twist to the story. The title represents a Willow tree in there yard and how the roots of that tree run deep like faith. Finding faith is also a big part of this book with one of the characters. I enjoyed this book, but got really mad at some of the characters while reading.
