Overview

Green survived a tornado, but now the town faces a new storm—one that threatens the schools!

As Green continues to recover from a horrendous tornado, newlyweds Lois and Chris just want to return to a normal life in their home on Route Two.

But even more threats to Green loom on the horizon. The state of Louisiana announces plans to close Green’s schools, which will put Chris out of work and end a long-standing tradition of community pride. Lois and Chris know the loss will crush the community and harm students forced to travel more than an hour to classes. Then there’s that new highway that’s creeping even closer . . .

But Green has another tradition: Rallying around each other. Newspaper owner Lois, Mayor Eva, and college students unite to fight the bureaucrats, with some surprising—and unexpected results.

"This charming series will appeal to fans of Jan Karon and Philip Gulley for its homespun feel." - Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Christie’s next installment in the ongoing Green series, there’s no rest for the weary townspeople of Green, La., after a devastating tornado. An educational consultant sashays into town to close down Green High, whose students aren’t meeting state benchmarks. Consultant Marcus Hillburn has a very willing helper in Priscilla Robinson, a snake-like new administrator at the high school. Meanwhile, newlyweds Lois Barker Craig and her husband, Chris, a teacher and coach at the high school, are having their home rebuilt; a high school student sustains a serious injury; and a few bad pennies depicted in previous books return to the action. Christie has developed a sweet community, with dogs that can be depended on for comic relief and assorted quirky townspeople with varying histories, squarely in the vein of Jan Karon’s Mitford or Charlene Baumbich’s Partonville. Christie is capable of more depth—there is some subtle and believable redemption taking place—but Green fans will rally to this next edition for newspaper owner Lois and her smalltown friends. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Christie continues the story of Lois and Chris, who married in the last book (The Glory of Green), with this fourth installment. The newlyweds have just returned home to Green, LA, when the state announces the closure of Green's schools. The closures will put Chris out of work and result in the bussing of Green's students to another parish. In typical fashion, the residents of Green rally together to fight for what's right. VERDICT This charming series will appeal to fans of Jan Karon and Philip Gulley for its homespun feel.

    This whole series is a very good read if you like stories that take place in small town America. I got a couple books free, but then bought the others as I just had to know the whole story of the residents that live in the town of Green.

    Enjoyable and a quick read

    I wasn't looking for another series to follow, but this is the second "Green" book I've read and I have enjoyed both. The characters are likeable and the story lines move along well. Not high literature but a nice, easy read.

    This series was a delightful, clean read. There was friendship, love, a little mystery and faith. I am not into the christian novels, but this did not overdo the christian element. Quick read.

    Realistic Fiction...

    Some of the characters seemed like people I would know. This is the first book that I read from the series and did not find Lois to be a very likable character, although when I later read the previous book about Lois' wedding and the tornado, I found her to be a more sympathetic character. I liked the storyline but found that the central conflict in the story was just glossed over and that day to day life took over the focus which made it slightly dull. It was an okay book.

    I really enjoyed this book - the entire "Green" series

    I really enjoyed this book - the entire "Green" series. I liked the character development and the quality of the story is wonderful. You really get to know the characters. Ms. Christy's writing style reminds me a bit of Jan Karon and the Mitford series. If you enjoyed Mitford, I encourage you to try the Green series as well.
