I read a review about Our Daily Bread and also noted it was listed as one of the best books of 2011 by The Boston Globe, so I ordered the book. I just finished it in a day and half - I couldn't put it down. I got into the story from the first few pages, and really cared about what happened to Albert and the other children on the mountain. The older woman from the town who runs the antique shop, Dorothy, is one of my favorite characters. The story moves along quickly, and is exceptionally well written. I found the whole experience very satisfying and highly recommend this novel.

Albert Erskine is one of the mountain people. He was born there, raised there and still is there, albeit in his own one-room shack away from everyone else. He lived through the hell that serves for growing up in his clan. He endures sodomy, sex with his mother, burns, whippings, little love and absolutely no salvation. Just like the young children in his family today. Bobby Evans is a typical sullen teen. His mother has left the home, his little sister Ivy cries a lot, his dad is lost in life. He thinks he has it bad. He hasn't a clue. Then he meets Albert and finds the big brother he never had. What happens when these two collide is beyond imagination. The children of the mountain want to die; Ivy wants to be a rockhound and wants dad to hunt with her. An amazing woman named Dorothy Carlisle has been secretly trying to help the mountain children for years and finds it easy to assist Ivy in her loneliness by having her help in Dorothy's antique shop. Above all of this in their small town world of Gideon is the Church of Christ Returning, whose parishioners can gossip their lives away but can't be bothered to lift their hands in assistance. What happens in this story is horrible - beyond it, in fact but what happens in this story will change you. I made me hate my fellow man because, although this is a tale of fiction - it is based on the truth and that's something I will never forget. "Deliverance" my foot - this is the real story!
