1971 — In the tiny, backward town of Tulma, Tennessee, optimistic, bookish Caroline Carson unwittingly finds herself in the middle of a forbidden romance. Severely neglected by her family and forced to flee Tulma to protect her secrets, Caroline’s young life comes crashing down around her. She finds refuge in a new town, but the past always has a way of stretching around time and stirring up trouble. 

When a new love comes into her life, she has to decide if she can give her heart to someone else, or if she will always be tied to someone she can’t have.

My Review:
In the FieldsIn the Fields by Willow Aster

My rating: 5+ of 5 stars

Willow Aster is effing amazing! Review to follow.

ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. This review is spoiler-free. No cliffhanger. Five+ black and white stars.

Once again Willow Aster knocked it out of the park and In The Fields. Home run! I absolutely LOVED Aster’s first book – A True Love Story and couldn’t wait to read her second book. While ITF is radically different than her first book its equally captivating. I set my expectation level pretty high after reading ATLS. In the Fields surpassed my expectations. This book will sit on my favorites shelf next to ATLS.

I will top-line my review so I can remain spoiler free. In The Fields takes place in the 1970’s in the heart of Tennessee. Civil rights laws might have been put in play but deep seeded racist beliefs are still prevalent. Caroline is a young white girl who is in love with her best friend Isaiah – who is black. They keep their relationship a secret since it’s is considered unacceptable to family and friends.

Life isn't as sweet as the peaches that grow in the fields by Caroline's home. She is abandoned by her alcoholic father and her selfish mother leaves her for weeks at a time to fend for herself. Caroline and Isaiah dream of leaving their KKK loving town and marrying and living somewhere progressive. Then one day, one quick walk in the fields changes everything and life will never be the again.

To say this book is written well is an understatement. Willow Aster is an incredible story teller and such an exceptional writer. Every sentence crafted with such precision so that each character comes to life. Her writing is poetic and packed with emotion. Albeit, the "event" that happened in the fields was still shocked me when it happened. In the Fields is truly an epic journey about conquering adversity and second chance love. What a love story! Would I recommend this book? Is Willow Aster on my auto-download list? Do I live for books like this? Yes, yes and yes! It’s writers like Aster that make me love writing reviews. Now go one click this fine piece of Kindle Crack.
