    Disappointing sequel

    The Gap was very good. This was a very poor sequel; a lot of repeat storyline. I feel it was a waste of almost $15.00 .....

    Good book.

    I liked this book. It was not Gap Creek, but it kept me interesred with the historical details. Robert Morgan is a supreme storyteller.

    Disappointed

    I bought this book because i loved Gap Creek, one of my all time favorire books. This book does not even compare. It has no plot and skips around so much that I could not finish it. It was impossible to keep up with the characters. Morgan just did not come through on this book. I am an avid reader and this book was such a disappointment I just had to post this review.

    This book centered on an interesting concept, but the writing fe

    This book centered on an interesting concept, but the writing fell flat.  The narrator, Annie, tells a simple, but moving story of life in the North Carolina mountains during World War II and the Great Depression.  The reader follows Annie and her family and friends through decades of hard times and their struggles to maintain an existence.  Annie starts the tale as a young girl living in a simple cabin but the story quickly ends when Annie is around 30.  Annie returns many times to certain events and the reader begins to think she is a feeble old woman who cannot remember what part of the story she has already told.  The jumping back and forth from the different times did not work well.  Many events focused on a younger brother, Troy, and his dog, Old Pat.  Morgan attempted to write the language as the people, but the nuances were not captured.  As usual, I like to learn something new, which I did.  I learned about the “dog days of summer”.

    ¿The Road from Gap Creek¿ is the sequel to Robert Morgan¿s best

    “The Road from Gap Creek” is the sequel to Robert Morgan’s best selling novel, “Gap Creek,” which was published in the late 90’s.
    “The Road From Gap Creek” continues the story.  The book begins in 1943 with the sad news of the wartime death of one of
     Annie Richard’s two brothers, Troy.  After this news the story, through Annie, goes back to an earlier time with the family and
    begins Annie’s telling of her nd her family’s lives up until troy’s death.

    While the sequel is not as good as the original, it almost is and it is well worth the time.
