Mary Ann’s Mountain by Mary Ann Rose Hart Rates a Favorable Kirkus Book Review

Published October 21, 2015

“In this debut novel set in the late 1950s, young Mary Ann shares stories about life on a mountain farm in Virginia. These lively tales inspired by her life indeed serve as a striking showcase of postwar childhood. Her novel may attract general interest as well, given how its plucky heroine and family-positive spirit are reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie and other beloved children’s classics. . . .her narrative is full of feisty characters (and cats) as well as gentle images . . . A charming debut full of endearing family stories with universal appeal.”

To say the least, I was thrilled with this professional review. I had been told how strict the reviewers were and that I might just want to shred the review once I received it. Now, I want everyone to know about it!
