Sweeping Up GlassSweeping Up Glass by Carolyn Wall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Pope County, Kentucky, in the town of Aurora, this story spans the life of Olivia Harker Cross from when she was a little girl until the later part of her life. I enjoyed the telling of her life, including her relationship with her Pap, the self-taught veterinarian and the characters of Junk and Love Alice. There were a couple of twists at the end that I didn't expect (and am still not sure if I cared for) but, overall I really enjoyed this book. This captures the hard life of living in depression era Kentucky and all of the characters felt rich and three dimensional.
