Sometimes There's a Doveby Cynthia Ward
"Sometimes There's a Dove" is a story of one family's search for peace in a world full of unrest. In the fall of 1939, the Brown family is on the move yet again. Desperate for work, they head for the Delta lands of Mississippi. Every day seems to be a battle just to exist. The Great Depression has them, as it does most of the world, in its solid grip. This story is a series of battles refreshingly told from a child's point of view. Our narrator fights a world full of poverty, war and fear as she moves steadily forward in her unwavering search for that elusive white dove, finding it in a place she never thought it would be.
