あらすじ・解説

The paper was an unexpected inheritance from a close colleague, and Lois must keep it for at least a year, bringing a host of challenges, lessons, and blessings into her life. When Lois pulls into Green on New Year's Day, she expects a charming little town full of smiling people. She quickly realizes her mistake. After settling into a loaned house out on Route 2, she finds herself battling town prejudices and inner doubts and making friends with the most surprising people: troubled teenager Katy, good-looking catfish farmer Chris, wise and feisty Aunt Helen, and a female African American physician named Kevin.

Whether fighting a greedy, deceitful politician or rescuing a dog she fears, Lois notices the headlines in her life have definitely improved. She learns how to provide small-town news in a big-hearted way and realizes that life is full of newsworthy moments. When she encounters racial prejudice and financial corruption, Lois also discovers more about the goodness of real people and the importance of being part of a community. While secretly preparing the paper for a sale, Lois begins to realize that God might indeed have a plan for her life and that perhaps the allure of city life and career ambition are not what she wants after all.

Newspaper Owner Moves To Small Southern Town

I tried this new to me series because it was on a list at my local library for books to read if you liked The Mitford series. This book is set in the south (North Louisiana), focuses on publishing a small town local newspaper and has a varied and believable cast of characters.

To me, the series ended up being very different from the Mitford books. For example, in Gone to Green the author will say they had dinner and occasionally mention the food they ate. However, in Mitford Karon describes the trip to the market, the buying of the food, the preparation, the cooking, the recipes and how it all tasted. The quirkiness, silly antics and detailed love of food from Mitford are missing in Gone to Green.

In addition, I thought at times the degree of change that main character Lois was able to create as an outsider in her new community might have been a bit too quick and easy. That said--I still liked the story. To me the book was a positive listen. Christie turns a sharp eye on local corruption, poverty and community inequality while delivering a message of hope and possibility. This is a strong title in the Religious Inspirational genre. Well written and nicely narrated with an upbeat tone. Maybe not Mitford--but I think Gone to Green stands well on its own.

review

It started out kind of slow. I wasn't sure I would finish it it. By chapter 4 I finally got into it. Great story after that.

Female Journalist Inherits a Newspaper! Excellent Book!

Author Judy Christie weaves an imaginative book about a Northern big city, female journalist who inherits a small town newspaper she must run at least one year. Enjoy her hesitant adventure and the self-actuating growth she experiences with friends and foes. Highly Recommend!

City Girl Meets Deep South Home & Hearth

Well, I'll be . . . this one is the best I've listened to for a good while! I've had it in my library for a long time and never got around to listening to it and now I don't know what I was waiting for! It didn't take me long to realize I was missing out . . . when Lois pulls in to Green, Louisiana, she knew for certain she was out of her comfort zone . . . lol . . . dogs running wild, corrupt politicians, the best food on the planet, and everyone calling you honey or sweetie . . . and did I mention, everybody goes to church on Sundays? When a flat tire necessitates a chance meeting with the local lady pastor, who changes her tire for her . . . a friendship forms that eventually leads Lois back to the Lord . . . good looking neighbor, Chris , who raises catfish and walks his dog, and all her employees at the little newspaper that Lois inherited from her friend, Ed, they all have grown to love Lois . . . and she loves them . . . and the little town of Green has changed and grown in the year since Lois arrived . . . the paper is finally making money . . . she's learned a lot . . . but will the lure of the big city be too much for her to turn down???

Loved it!

This story unfolded slowly but brilliantly. Without realizing it, I was drawn into the lives of the characters and the intrigues of the town. A great read which delivers a powerful message without being preachy. The themes resonated with me on several levels and I gained new insight and appreciation for southern hospitality. Hope and inspiration delivered at the pace one associates with hot summer days in the south.
