Both Karen Hesse’s writing and Marika Mashburn’s narration proved award-worthy, much to the delight of each reader selecting ‘Out of the Dust’ from the shelf.
1930’s Oklahoma begins with the birth of Billie Jo, the book’s protagonist, described as: ‘a long-legged girl with a wide mouth and cheekbones like bicycle handles; a red-headed, freckled-faced, narrow-hip girl with a fondness for apples and a hunger for playing fierce piano.’
What an opening! I was hooked.
“The way I see it, hard times aren't only about money, or drought, or dust.
Hard times are about losing spirit, and hope, and what happens when dreams dry up.”
Much tragedy and sadness in Hesse’s award-winning novel, but a delight to the reader privileged to read it and pray for a better future.
