Bradleyville Series Book 1

"A course-changing event in one's life can happen in minutes. Or it can form slowly, a primitive webbing splaying into fingers of discontent, a minuscule trail hardening into the sinewed spine of resentment. So it was with the mill workers as the heat-soaked days of summer marched on."
----------
City girl Jessie, orphaned at sixteen, struggles to adjust to life with her barely known aunt and uncle in the tiny town of Bradleyville, Kentucky. Eight years later (1968) she plans on leaving—to following in her revered mother's footsteps of serving the homeless. But the peaceful town she's come to love is about to be tragically shattered. Threats of a labor strike rumble through the streets, and Jessie's new love and her uncle are swept into the maelstrom. Caught between the pacifist teachings of her mother and these two men, Jessie desperately tries to deny that Bradleyville is rolling toward violence and destruction.

Editorial Reviews

RT BookReviews - Bev Huston
"By far one of the best books I've read this year. Collins makes writing seem incredibly easy as she bares her heroine's soul for readers to struggle and identify with." --Best Inspirational Novel nominee
Online - Jill Nelson
"Ms. Collins' command of characterization is nothing less than phenomenal.Every individual in the story is someone who could live down the street, and yet so intriguingly drawn that there is nothing ordinary about any of them. Your emotions will be tugged every which way until the end, a satisfying conclusion to a gourmet meal. My advice? Get your hands on anything Ms. Collins has written. You won't be disappointed."
Online - Ane Mulligan

"Brandilyn Collins knows how to captivate her audience. Once you enter Bradleyville, you won't want to leave either! Pick up "Color a Sidewalk for Me" and "Capture the Wind for Me" to spend more time with the background characters in this novel. It will definitely be worth your time."
