    I loved this book! In it we follow the life of Abigail, the 12th

    I loved this book! In it we follow the life of Abigail, the 12th child born to a father who didn't even think girl babies were worth bothering to name. Fortunately her mother loved and cared for her.

    The story had humorous moments along with some sadness and the author really has a way of describing her characters that makes you feel as if you know them personally. The friendship between Abigail and Destiny was a very touching one which shows that sometimes the most caring people are not related to you!

    If you are looking for an excellent book that spans years and is hard to put down, this is the one for you!

    Abigail Anne had a wonderful mother and a mean father so she finally left his home and learned to live on her own. She loved once and lost and then met a girl who lived next door, Destiny, and she became like a daughter to her and a best friend. Destiny was accused of embezzling money from Abigail, but Abigail wasn't able to tell anyone the truth. Read it and find out the whole story.

    Wow!! I just found a new favorite author!! THE TWELTH CHILD by B

    Wow!! I just found a new favorite author!! THE TWELTH CHILD by Bette Lee Crosby covers all the things that makes for a spectacular read----wonderful, heartwarming story; characters who warm your heart, get you laughing, and whom you love to despise; and writing that makes you want to go back and re-read paragraphs. 




    This story of an 'unwanted girl child' from the Appalachians is basically a search for love, friendship, and finding your place in the world. Abigail has come to the end of her years, when she meets the bubbling young Destiny, who moves in across the street from her. They soon become fast friends as they find what they need in each other. This story goes back and forth in time, developing intrigue as a greedy distant relative comes into the picture causing all the trouble that one could possible imagine! 




    This book would also be a great book group read, with lots to discuss. Really glad this author found me!

    The Twelfth Child is a beautifully written, warm story of Abigai

    The Twelfth Child is a beautifully written, warm story of Abigail Anne Lannigan and then ultimately Destiny Fairchild. Filled with emotion. Ms. Crosby writes in such a way as to capture the reader and lead them through the story which is impossible to put down. I highly recommend!
