Editorial Reviews

Kathy Hill
"Sometimes There's a Dove is filled with wonderful accounts of a child's simple life. Tales of fishing, climbing trees, ghost stories, and new love were touching and well described...."

Leslie Hegwood
Girl takes trip to womanhood during WWII "Clair, quick to love and quick to deliver a well-deserved school-yard stomping, is the highly developed, involving protagonist of "Sometimes There's a Dove."

"Clair has an inner fortitude that has defined Southern women for generations; hers has been tempered by a lifetime of poverty as well as being a self-described "half-breed," half white and half Choctaw.

"Hers is a family full of love. While her parents travel the country desperate to find work in the middle of World War II, Clair and her three siblings see every day as an adventure with fishing, dirt-dobber catching and playing catch on the daily list of things to do...."

"Told from Clair's perspective, "Sometimes There is A Dove" contains some humorous antics common to all kids and memories from an era gone by with a slower and seemingly safer pace of life."
