Tish McComb has always loved hearing her dad talk about her ancestors and she loves the picture of her great, great, great, great grandparents and is surprised when her mom gives her the family letters that her father had kept. While reading the letters, she looks up the address for the McCombs house in Noble, Alabama and finds that it is for sale. On her way back from helping her mother move to Florida, she stops by and looks at the house and on a whim, she decides to buy the house.
After moving to Noble, she finds that people are rude to her and she can’t begin to imagine why, other than that she is a Yankee. She soon finds out from Mel that she should talk to George Zorbas about the McCombs past. She does just that and finds that they had a awful past. Will she be able to get the people from Noble to realize that she is nothing like her ancestors? Will Mel get rid of her ugly past and her father forgive her?
Gone South is a wonderful novel about forgiveness and looking beyond people’s flaws. It is one of those books that you can’t put down and that you can learn a lot about life from and learn how God loves us no matter what our past holds. You definitely would not be disappointed with this wonderful novel.
