Cecelia Dowdy’s sophomore (actually, I believe it’s her 3rd…) effort, “Milk Money,” is a lovely novel. Miss Dowdy has improved immeasurably in her creation of dialogue, and her attention to detail in storytelling makes this book an enjoyable read. From the charming title to the wonderfully engaging opening paragraph, I was hooked on this book. The conflict created by the author felt less contrived than in “John’s Quest”. Bravo, Cecelia, this is a cool book!
This is the story of Emily, a young girl running a dairy farm without the ability to do everything on her own, and Frank, the CPA hired by Emily’s stepmom to see to the accounting side of the business. I was absolutely captured from the opening chapter, and invested as I learned why Emily was running the place and began to question stepmom’s motives. “Milk Money” is a sweet story and a worthwhile way to spend a few hours.
So, if you haven’t purchased Milk Money, I encourage you to do so! It’s a sweet story that I’m pretty sure you’ll love!
