What Momma Left Behind – book review by Mina R. Raulston

This newest novel by Cindy K. Sproles is a well-written tale about a time in the history of the Appalachian mountains when influenza and typhoid tore through this isolated territory. She tells a painful tale of a young woman who made difficult choices and endured terrible hardship that she was not prepared to face. Ms. Sproles goes deep and tells a heart-wrenching story that rings true of the people and the time. It was a little too emotional for me, but she couldn’t have written it any other way and still be true to history.
