At Home in Persimmon Hollow is the first book in a series chronicling the world of Agnes Foster and the people of frontier-era Florida. In 1886, Agnes Foster is forced to leave the Catholic orphanage in New York where she grew up to start a new life as a teacher in Persimmon Hollow, Florida, a town she has only ever seen in a newspaper ad. With nothing but her strong Catholic faith to sustain her, she leaves behind the only home she’s ever known and the little girl she hopes to adopt, and encounters a wild and beautiful new landscape, and a town full of hardworking, faith-filled people.The audio edition of this book can be downloaded via Audible.

It was a gift. I do not know her reaction


This, along with the companion book about Persimmon Hollow, is an uplifting, engaging story that will appeal to teens and to grandmothers (me) too. I enjoyed the setting. Persimmon Hollow is set in an undeveloped area of Florida. For me it was a refreshing glimpse of an area rarely seen as a setting for a novel.
Both Persimmon books are good light, summer reading.
