From the Publisher:
Set in the Appalachia in 1963, Livy Two has come to terms with the fact that her father is a changed man after being in a coma for so long and so now, along with her eleven-year-old sister, Louisiana, she must find a way to take care of their father and the needs of their large mountain family the best way they can.Livy Two is happy that Daddy is finally out of his coma, but the befuddled man who comes home is not the daddy the Weems family once knew. He forgets their names, he wanders offÂ?he wonÂ't even touch his beloved banjo. Set in Appalachia in 1963, this heartwarming, and heart-wrenching, follow-up to GentleÂ's Holler is narrated by the irrepressible Livy Two, and traces the ups and downs of her large mountain family. Shy and awkward 11-year-old Louise (Louisiana) becomes the reluctant hero as she develops a talent for painting, takes care of Daddy, and shows a surprised Livy Two that sometimes the quietest sibling turns out to be the strongest.
