Gone South by Meg Moseley

Gone South by Meg Moseley was given to me by a friend and while a pleasant read, the story did move slowly and at times wasn't overly believable. Although one of the characters did have a learning disability and was unable to grasp simple math, nevertheless she acted more like a 16 year old than a girl of 21. Ms. Moseley likens her story to the Prodigal Son parable.

From the cover:
Leaving frosty Michigan for the Deep South was never a blip in the simple plans Tish McComb imagined for her life, dreams of marriage and family that were dashed five years earlier in a tragic accident. Now an opportunity to buy her great-great-great-grandparents’ Civil War era home beckons Tish to Noble, Alabama, a Southern town in every sense of the word. She wonders if God has given her a new dream—the old house filled with friends, her vintage percolator bubbling on the sideboard.
When Tish discovers that McCombs aren’t welcome in town, she feels like a Yankee behind enemy lines. Only local antiques dealer George Zorbas seems willing to give her a chance. What’s a lonely outcast to do but take in Noble’s resident prodigal, Melanie Hamilton, and hope that the two can find some much needed acceptance in each other.
