Cub Creek by Grace Greene, Book Spotlight & Review
In the heart of Virginia, where the forests shelter secrets and the creeks run strong and deep ~
Libbie Havens doesn’t need anyone. She’s fine on her own. When she chances upon the secluded house on Cub Creek she purchases it. She’ll show her cousin Liz, and other doubters, that she can rise above her past and live happily and successfully on her own terms.
Libbie has emotional problems born of a troubled childhood. Raised by a grandmother she could never please, Libbie is more comfortable not being comfortable with people. She knows she’s different from most. She has special gifts, or curses, but are they real? Or are they products of her history and dysfunction?
At Cub Creek Libbie makes friends and even attracts the romantic interest of two local men, Dan Wheeler and Jim Mitchell. Relationships with her cousin and other family members improve dramatically and Libbie experiences true happiness—until a tragedy occurs.
Having lost the good things gained at Cub Creek, Libbie must find a way out her troubles, to finally rise above them and seize control of her life and future, or risk losing everything, including herself.
Cub Creek is a book unlike any other I have read recently! Greene drew me in with the descriptive details of the Cub Creek home and scenery. I wanted to be there on the porch watching the entire story unfold! The whole story has this otherworldly feeling, I was never white sure what was going to unfold next! I loved Libbie and silently cheered her on as she made changes and learned to believe in herself! If you enjoy a mysterious clean read with beautiful scenery while a great story unfolds, then Cub Creek is the book that you want!
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
