Heir to the Everlasting by Janice Daugharty

A wonderful narrative about a multi-generational people of women in Georgia, Heir to the Everlasting, can cross generational lines. The first two thirds of the narrative are placed around the early 1900’s (between 1900 and 1920) and are very specific in the living of a woman in that period. This part moved with history and moments in time that are authentic events. I really liked the design and the pace of those two thirds. The present day part of the story was a bit harder to read, the plot got a little off topic with nonstop details on fishing (which considering this is a YA novel I found a bit strange) and other interludes that didn’t help the story progress.
Most of the book was well written and I truly did like the story.
