In many parts of the world, being poor isn’t just a hardship, it can be life threatening. In some countries, the most-endangered – orphans, single women and single mothers – are targeted for human trafficking. Desperation and false claims of a better life draw them into danger.
Lighthouses are settings for a number of novels. People are fascinated by the mystery surrounding such remote places. Two recent novels that have lighthouse settings are: Light between Oceans by M. L. Stedman and Edge of the Earth by Christina Schwarz.
The title of this book intrigued me from the moment I first saw it. I enjoy reading books with settings in the South, and this title is as Southern as it gets. The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat is set in a fictional town in southern Indiana called Plainview. Reminiscent of The Help, this debut novel by Edward Kelsey Moore is filled with the charm and wit of the South. As African American teenagers in the late 1960's, Clarice, Barbara Jean, and Odette hung out with most of their peers in a diner called Earl's.
