Nature doesn t deal with straight lines There are no straight lines anywhere and that goes for pathways too You can look for them but they don t exist You have to expect nature to curve and have bumps and that s the thing you can count on Life is that way too Once in a blue moon a book finds its way into your hands uietly seeping into your pores gently thundering permeating your every thought consuming you heart and soul so much so reality ceases to exist as you are transported to another time and place among new found friends enemies family members and neighbors and you become one with the story Velva Jean Learns to Drive for me is every bit a blue moon story The funny thing is that until I was saved I never knew I was lost I finished reading this novel nearly a week ago while away from my computer In which I could have used my Smartphone to post a uick blurb review Velva Jean Leans to Drive An endearing depression era coming of age story rich in Appalachian culture superstitions faith music and can do grit a phenomenal Top Pick read based in part on Niven s familyheritageSure those things are true enough but in comparison to the wondrous gift Jennifer Niven gave me through Velva Jean it would have been considerably lame and downright disrespectful to write a true but trite review uality vs uantity less is not always and shortcuts aren t always the best route And just because you can it doesn t mean you ought to But if someone says you can t perhaps you should at least try Where there s a will there s a way as Niven brings to light you just have to stand your ground yet remain flexible The strongest trees are the ones that bend with the storms The tree knows not to give itself up It stands its ground It bends but it doesn t break With feisty Velva Jean I experienced the joy of adventure in a simpler time the adrenalin rush of being chased by haints and paints and a dream that won t die the pain of rejection and grief real and imagined the metamorphosing power of love in all its forms the rage and fury of injustice towards the downtrodden and misunderstood the satisfaction of accomplishing the seemingly impossible the conflicting opinionsemotions brought on by technology and expansion the ups and downs of becoming who you re meant to be the passion and power of music the exhilaration of traveling the unknown road to somewhere Go Fly And remember there is a difference between running from something and running to something Never run from something if you can help it I m still in awe Velva Jean Learns to Drive is a superb story bittersweet atmospheric rich a true southern Appalachian historic gem an exceptionally well written transporting novel that is steeped in all the richness of what great Appalachian storytelling is all about Irish superstitions Cherokee lore spiritualism naturalism fierce independence and music and song I loved every word Thank you Jennifer Niven I m looking forward to reading Velva Jean Learns to Fly

This book was a little hard to get into at first and yet strangely I could not put it down We first meet Velva Jean when she is 10 years old and watch as she grows older marries and has to make a decision about pursuing her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry I had to really get myself into the right frame of mind for this book It takes place in the early 1930s and continues into the early 40s So there were a lot of things that I was shaking my head over I couldn t believe that it was unseemly for women to drive cars I had never actually heard that before and would have smacked my husband if he tried to tell me I couldn t drive a car But things like this were a part of every day life for Velva Jean This just makes her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry that much difficult to achieve This was a time where women were supposed to marry have children and take care of the family and house hold and be happy with it The story did pull me in and I loved the cast of characters you meet like her brother Johnny Clay the wood carver who is supposed to be some sort of crazy half animal murderer and Sweet Fern her sister who has to put her own life on hold in order to take care of her brothers and sister after their mother dies and their father leaves home Velva Jean s character often struck me as immature but then I would have to remind myself that she is not even 18 years old yet through most of the book so then I would find myself feeling sorry for her The ending wraps up uite nicely with her learning the true reason her father left home and we finally learn the decision she makes whether to pursue her dream or pursue the love she has for Harley
