In For the Love of Honey, C.G. Morgan creates a compelling character that is impossible to forget. Born on the mountain and raised by her mother and grandmother, Honey Giles finds the courage to face the town people who treat her unfairly. She does not know the truth about her family –- the secrets that her mother is determined to keep and her sister who pretends they are not related at all. When she begins school, Honey realizes that there are so many horrible things to deal with in life and she has to face them squarely if she wants to survive. At a young age, will Honey be able to surmount prejudices and the lack of clearness of social conventions?

Honey tells her story without sugar-coating the situation. This is the very reason why I immediately love her. She is such an amazing girl who has an equally amazing journey that eventually makes her a strong and wise woman. For The Love of Honey is a Southern fiction and you will be pleased to read it over and over again. In this book, you will get to see the nature of family and community surrounding Honey. You will laugh with her, cry with her, and scream with her.

C.G. Morgan successfully delivers this beautiful story from Honey’s perspective. Although I am not used to the dialect, which admittedly makes me confused sometimes, it does not make me want to put down the book because the emotion is so real that it pierces through your own heart and soul.
