What Momma Left Behind by Cindy K. Sproles

There are books and there are books that you don't forget. This is a book that you don't forget.  It's the heart wrenching yet hopeful story of seventeen-year-old Worie Dressar. When her mother commits suicide, she doesn't know where to turn next. She's sadly and suddenly an orphan. Worie cannot fathom why her mother would leave her and her troubled brothers in this way. Worie soon learns more about her mother in her death than she ever knew in her years of living. The most surprising thing Worie discovers is that her mother had been feeding countless orphans and now the responsibility falls on Worie. Worie picks right up where her mother left off and tries to support all these orphans while coming to terms with the fact that she's now an orphan herself.

This book is gripping and memorable. The book is written from the point of view of Worie's mountain living dialogue. I am not always a fan of writing like this, but I enjoyed it in this book. It helped me to gain a better understanding of Worie and her life. While everything didn't go as I expected in this book, I still really enjoyed it. I thought it was very well written and the characters were very interesting and easy to relate to. Thank you so much to the author and publisher for the chance to read and review this book!
