Julie by Catherine Marshall: a Classic Book review and giveaway: Julie #sponsored #giveaway

Welcome to this blog stop. Don't forget to visit the other stops to see what everyone has to say about this wonderful read. Get ready for the beach with a good book like this one.

This is a great classic book you will just love to read or re-read. I love to dive into history with books like this one that involve other eras like the Great Depression. It is so fascinating to read and imagine the era. In this wonderful classic, Julie Wallace has always wanted to write. With limited options to  escape the Great Depression, Julie’s father tries something different. He buys a small town newspaper called the Alderton Sentinel. He moves his entire family to Alderton, Pennsylvania. Of course the town is subject to flooding and often. As flash floods ominously increase, Julie’s crack investigative reporting uncovers long hidden secrets that could endanger the entire community.

Things get wild when the powerful owners of the steel mills stand off against Julie, the newspaper, and her family. The family continues to investigate the horrid conditions of the immigrant laborers nevertheless. Tensions really rise when the Alderton Sentinel and Julie take on a more aggressive role to reform these awful conditions. The book takes a turn when a devastating tragedy follows a truly shocking revelation.  Julie’s courage and strength are tested again and again. You will want to read late into the night to find out Will truth and justice win, or will Julie lose everything she holds dear?
