Item Description...
Despite the hard times that still grip the town, Jeb Nubey, now a dependable minister and accidental parent to three orphans, happily settles into the quiet routines of Nazareth, Arkansas. Even the pretty schoolteacher, Fern, who once seemed so cold to him, finally returns his attentions. Then one fateful night, a small package is delivered to Nubey's doorstep: an infant girl. And the baby is black. Unable to find a relative for the baby anywhere, Jeb feels obligated to care for her. This simple act of charity, however, awakens the troubled undercurrent of racism in the South of the Great Depression. The townsfolk of Nazareth find themselves divided-what are they to make of bricks thrown through windows, graffiti on the church's wall, the child's new black nanny, and a craven attack in an apple orchard? And who will win the battle for the heart of this one small town? Under a chorus of joyous gospel choirs and benevolent reconciliation, Hickman's melodious prose and vivid characters draw the reader into a fulfilling story, one filled with humor, rage, misunderstanding, and-finally-faith.

Publishers Description
The third novel in the Millwood Hollow Series about an unlikely hero and a ragtag trio of orphans in racially segregated 1930s Arkansas.

An Awesome 3rd Book!  Oct 29, 2007
This is the 3rd book in the Millwood Hollow series. But you don't need to read the series, as each book stands alone. The other two books being "Fallen Angel" and "Nazareth's Song". The book is historical/fiction with just a touch of romance.

Our story takes place in Nazareth, Arkansas as Jeb Nubley the town banjo player former liar and ex-convict is the pastor of Church in the Dell. The town has seemed to all but forgotten Jeb's past as things have calmed down and Jeb has settled in raising the 3 Welby children - Angel, Willie and Ida May. Jeb has even finally won the heart of his sweetheart Fern Coulter. But soon the quiet erupts as in the middle of the night a small bundle of a baby is left on his doorstep. The problem being this is no ordinary bundle of joy as it is a black baby. Since this story takes place during the depression we see how fast the town turns against the minister of Church in the Dell. Oddly as quickly as the baby was dropped off the pastor of the black church in Hope, the nearby town drops off a young girl, Lucky to help out. Jeb knows there's a connection between the baby and the young girl but she's not talking. So Jeb sets out to solve the mystery of baby Myrtle and Lucky while trying to hold the family together against the hatred towards him and Fern and the children as they all stand united to give the two the proper home they so desperately need. Jeb tries to change the town's hearts and minds. As his friendship with Louie, the pastor from the church in Hope, grows all are taught lessons of God's love beyond measure. The end of the story has its ups and downs with sadness and joy, but in the end - everyone must read for themselves, as this story does not end as expected.

Reading this book will make you desire to read the other two books "Fallen Angel", and "Nazareth's Song". After you read this book I'm sure you'll be like more me wanting and waiting for more books to come. But for now enjoy this book, as it is a page-turner must read for lovers of historical/fiction that can't be put down and a definite reread and read again.
Heartwarming Story  Jun 4, 2005
Perhaps the reason I enjoy this series so much is because, after 30-plus years of marriage, I understand men. Banjo-playing preacher Jeb Nubey is oft-times clueless when it comes to the growing pains of the three abandoned children he tends, and has had awkward (thus humorous) episodes in his romance with schoolteacher Fern Coulter. But there is a core of compassion and integrity, which cause him to take in the black child on his doorstap, and stand against the intense pressure of some in his all-white congregation at the Church in the Dell. I love Patricia Hickman's descriptions of small-town southern life, and bits of humor. This is a keeper!
Whisper Town  Jun 3, 2005
As the Depression grips the nation, a young minister finds himself the accidental foster father to three orphans. Adding one more shouldn't be much different, but this child is very different. The baby girl abandoned on his doorstep is not white, but he is. To Jeb that makes no difference, but it makes a huge difference when he begins trying to find her a wet nurse and in his interactions with the town folk. Jeb and his make shift family find themselves plunged into a violent backlash of hatred and racism. Yet, this makes him all the more determined to hold true to his convictions and do right by the baby girl. Unfortunately, the overall book lives up to the era in which it is set, the Depression. Though historically accurrate, it's rather a downer, bringing up reminders of a world most would prefer to forget.
