J. C. Wing is such a talented writer. She takes so many different subjects and melds them together into a a beautifully written story that will touch your heart and keep you on your toes at the same time. It's a contemporary woman's novel that can be enjoyed by an adult at any age. Alabama skye also shows the way family comes together in the time of need and is realistic in parts of the story. I loved this book and I know many others will too.
