The Secret Keepers of the Old Depot Grocery (by Amanda Cox)

This is the second book written by Amanda Cox. After reading her previous book, The Edge of Belonging, I couldn’t wait to read her next book. I loved this story! The author is one of my favorites. The characters were well developed and you become so invested in their lives. There are so many emotions threaded throughout the pages … love, loss, insecurity, family dynamics, forgiveness, and hope. Between the redemptive behaviors of Clarence and Clay, your heart will be warmed. The dual timeline was handled well and you will be pulled into both timeframes, travelling through the emotions each character experienced. The Old Depot Grocery brought back memories of going with my grandfather to the hardware store where he worked. I could remember the smell of the wood floors and sawdust, the clunky elevator, etc. The tears flowed down my cheeks as I immersed myself in this deep and heartwarming story. It is one to put at the top of your to-be-read list. I know that I will be anxiously waiting for the next gift of words this author will share with us.

Thank you to NetGalley and Fleming H. Revell Company for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
