    Paperback Ä Missing Isaac Epub º missing pdf, isaac ebok, Missing Isaac PDFEPUBThis was a win from LibraryThingcom for my honest albeit late review Missing Isaac takes place in Glory Alabama during the mid 1960s when the country was exploding with racial strife war protests and political assassinations Glory seems gloriously untouched by most of this news which may be what I felt was missing from a book that has been tagged as historical fiction as well as Christian fictionPete McLean is the only child of a wealthy widowed farm wife with Isaac being their black hired man and closest thing to best friend His grandfather Daddy Ballard is now his father figure Isaac goes missing following a card game and Pete takes it pretty hard but his efforts to find out what happened since the authorities aren't doing anything are eventually forbidden for his own safety After that it's up to Daddy Ballard to put his money to good use in trying to find IsaacThe beginning of the book had me absorbed in the richly visual descriptions of the area where the hired black fo

    Paperback Ä Missing Isaac Epub º missing pdf, isaac ebok, Missing Isaac PDFEPUBA coming of age and slice of life story not my typical choice but there were two simple romance threads that kept me happy Especially the older couple's The title made me think there would be to the search than there was and the cover and first chapters made me think this was a story of a young boy which I don't think I would have enjoyed as much as what the book truly turned out to be The story extends over years and sees him into adulthood and other characters share a lot of the limelight too but it's a story of a set of characters as they grow in a world struggling with change Valerie's descriptive ability was simple and authentic feeling making this town and its people seem real and sucked me in Reading the author note she did most of her research by oral history and is likely the reason why it felt so real
