Weeping Women Springs
by Tamara Eaton
GENRE: Historical Women’s Fiction
Tears of grief dilute magical Spring waters…
Hope Springs has a secret–the waters mysteriously uplift the spirits of whoever drinks them. When the town’s young men depart to fight in WWII, tragedy strikes. Grief dilutes the waters unique effects, and hiding the village away from the world may provide shelter from the pain—but at what cost? Preoccupied with honoring their loved ones’ memories, five shattered women struggle to gather strength to overcome their loss, and find hope again.
Then the boys, all forty-three of them, moved forward. Billy was the only hold out of the seniors and older boys. He’d promised me he wouldn’t go willingly, though he prepared me for the fact they might draft him.
Once the parade was underway, Liv came up to us. “Don’t they look handsome?”
I nodded but held tight to Billy’s hand. Then Billy jerked away in a way he never did before. My breath caught when as the recruits walked by, he stepped into the street, falling into step with the others.
I stared at him, and then narrowed my eyes at Liv. “Did you put him up to this?”
“No. I’m sure I don’t know what he’s doing.” Her open mouth showed she was just as shocked as I was.
A cheer went up from the crowd.
I returned my attention to the boys and swallowed hard. My Billy made his decision that day. I couldn’t help but wonder what would happen to us, to our plans. “He belongs there with them.”
Liv drew me close. “It’ll be all right.”
They continued down the street stopping at the Council and saluting. I nodded but didn’t answer. The sun warmed the chilled air. I wondered if I would ever feel warm again. If Billy went into the service, what would I do? It was a thought that never left me.
Death changes all. Weeping Women Springs is story about five women dealing with loss, grief and death. The town they live in is special, a spring that when you drink of it, it restoring effects. But what happens changes all and it begins to lose its magical powers. The lose these women go through is devastating. War time is such a rough time for a mother, wife, fiance, girlfriend and a widow. Can these women over come?
Such a sad and emotional book. The loss these women suffer and what they go through is heartbreaking. I enjoyed reading the book. It was a little slow going but very goor all the up to the end. The book is very well written and I liked how the author wrote with such feeling, almost as if you were her.
Four fangs from me!
