The Whispering of the Willows by Tonya Jewel Blessing

Whispering Willows tells of faith-the-Appalachian-way, draped in the camouflage of a small West Virginia community. A blossoming young woman has been traded into marriage by her superstitious parents who are desperate for another farm laborer. When key individuals begin carving out a rescue plan, Emerald Ashby grows strong despite grievous wrongs committed against her.

The book is so beautiful and simply detailed! The Whispering of the Willows perfectly pairs mothering hearts with brave young girls who enjoy solving perplexing problems about coming of age together. Inside the Willows' saga, life in the 1920's world of Big Creek, West Virginia, is discovered through the eyes of fourteen-year-old Emerald Ashby.
