I am pleased to post a series of interviews with Kerry Madden. She is the author of Louisiana's Song, a follow-up to her acclaimed Gentle's Holler.
Louisiana's Song is narrated again by Livy Two. Set in Appalachia in 1963, this heartwarming, and heart-wrenching, follow-up to Gentle’s Holler 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.
