Book Review: The Ballad of Jessie Pearl

In this story based off of Shannon Hitchcock’s family tree, the reader follows through several years of Jessie Pearl’s life. The writing is both stylistic and easy to read; the story captures your heart.

In the fashion of It’s a Wonderful Life, Jessie Pearl had dreams bigger than her town can hold. But life’s circumstances keep her bound to her family and her heart keeps her close to her family, leaving the reader to wonder will Jessie Pearl ever get to choose for herself?

I would recommend this fabulous story to any middle grade child. Through history and a forgotten time in American culture, the reading experience is both authentic, educational, and entertaining.

I look forward to more books by this author.
