Alabama Skye is a gentle story of the fortunes of five women united by blood and circumstance The writing is excellent and all of the female characters are well presented and individual although the male characters are less well roundedThe two principal characters are Cheney McGillivray and Greer Dover aunt and niece who come together in Alabama to start a Scottish themed guest house in Kelby Alabama Cheney is a native of Portree in Ske a Gaelic speaking islander whose father left home and went to the USA Greer is his grand daughter through his second marriage the two branches only becoming aware of each other after his death Cheney recently widowed finds that she cannot continue her life as a boarding house keeper in the house which had run successfully with her husband's culinary skills She sells up and moves Stateside knowing that her father had made provision for her in his will In the bosom of her alternative family she finds the strength to pick up and carry onGreer is a recently ualified chef and is the perfect business partner for Cheney uickly adding the traditional Scottish dishes to her repertoire once she has got her head around a mix of metric British Imperial and personal measures in the recipes she has been given At the beginning of the book she is in the first trimester of pregnancy and the father has shown a clean pair of heels The family and her best friend honorary sister Noah rally round but the idea from Skye seems to come at just the right moment so despite some misgivings Greer agrees to give it a goWhat follows is a gentle unrolling of personal and family secrets and family events In terms of drama it is of a carousel than a roller coaster but the stories are honest and the unfolding events with hints and partial reveals of private memories brings the story to its conclusion and along the way trust is forged and the family works together to resolve its problems and celebrate its successesCheney's Gaelic can be problematic Only at one point is a translation supplied during an extended conversation and although the context and the absolutely tiny amount of Gaelic that I know related to mountain peaks than conversation usually helps it can be absolutely opaue Given that I have been criticised for my use of Old English and Welsh without translation in Cædmon The Lord's Poet I guess I can hold up my hands and say that I finally understand what the problem is It certainly should not ruin your appreciation of the book and I would invite readers to stick with it and even to try to understand the words that are being saidI would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a gentle read celebrating the strength of women and family to come together and flourishI received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair review

Alabama Skye Gannon Family #1Resolved relationship back into town Although they are nearly strangers separated by a forty year age gap Cheney and Greer lean on one another as they come to terms with their lives and realize the possibilities of their futures Sprinkled with humor and colorful descriptions of both the Gulf Coast and that of Scotland’s Inner Hebridean Islands Alabama Skye is a story about the strength of four generations of women who discover that when things go wrong the ones who stand by you and the ones who carry you are the ones you call family. I received an e book copy of Alabama Skye in exchange for an honest review I do not like to do a book report You can see what the story line is by reading other reviews or the back cover blurb I base my review on my own personal reaction to the bookThis is a very heart warming story of 5 women who are connected by family and friendship I loved the way the author developed the characters and kept me wondering what the history was of some of the women The way in which JC Wing brings them together is somewhat uniue It is truly not a love story but it is a romantic and tender history of these women I also found it fascinating how the men though an important part of the story really did not become central characters The focus is truly on the growing relationships of the women I almost did not want the story to end yet it has a very satisfying endingI look forward to reading from this author
