It is unusual for literary work to make it through to fiction tips weekly however when I read Camille Cole's The Brass Bell, I had to post this review.
From a journal and personal letters, Camille Cole recants the impactful life of her great aunt Marion Parson, a woman of hope and inspiration during one of the darkest times in America, the great depression. After all these years the hundreds that attended the small hen house converted into a place of education still rally in memory of the hopes and dreams built by this endearing educator and founder of the Cherry Road School. This is a story of integrity, personal sacrifice, and the very heart of a great American legacy that continued for many who journeyed through.
This book is a must read. It is a valuable example of the humanity and the early American spirit.
