I was given a copy of Running On Red Dog Road through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:

Set mostly in the 1940’s East Beckley, West Virgina this is the story of the Authors growing up in Appalachia.  We learn that the author lost her Father in the Coal mines.  The author tells of generations of strong southern women, and of being raised with the help of her  Grandparents from an early age. We learn too that she was raised in the Pentecostal Church.

Berkheimer talks fondly of her family offering hobos a warm meal.  And she talks of Revivals held in a tent big enough for a circus as well as her brother who was left “Stone Deaf” after a bout with Spinal Meningitis.

At twelve she talks of watching her Grandfather die of Cancer. 

Journey with me back to the 1940s in Running on Red Dog Road

Five out of five stars

Happy Reading
