the work that occupies her every waking moment It s not legal to take the archives home they must stay at the librarybut we can feel how Cate wishes she could spend her days off from work snuggled up at home reading those archivesHer fascination and dedication learning all she can about the women who lived in the Berachah House was her passion Going out with a friend was almost a chore she felt at home with the dead Cate often visited the cemetery when she was longing for something she couldn t have HOME Situations that reuire intimacy of any kind however topple the careful balance I ve worked so hard to create I accepted it years ago And despite my therapist s confidence it remains painfully obvious when I attempt to engage on anything than a surface level I am a grown woman I am a professional I manage my life well But I am broken People sense it and when they do they walk away Me I run We ll learn about Cateand experience her growthWe also meetLizzie Bates Lizzie is 19 when we first meet her in 1904 She has a baby name Docie They come to live at the Houseafter some of the most devastating things she enduredreally awful My heart ached In the beginning before the Berachah House How Lizzie had earned her keep out at a country farm lately cooking for Negro inmates How the farm superintendent had taken her into his own shack to live in sin feeding her heroin to subdue her and then passed her to the chain gang boss when he tired of her How d she taken sick and it crippled her so badly she couldn t stand And finally how they d sent her and Docie to jail no regard for whether she lived or died Lizzie s time at the house the way she changes was really beautiful I came to really treasure her goodness the pure soul she was born with and passed on to her daughterand best friend MattieWe also meet Mattie Corder 23 years at the start I loved Mattie as much as Lizziebut I worried about her differently Mattie s outer shell was feisty than Lizzie It looks like she is confident and strongless sensitive than Lizzie She s definitely angry sad beaten down with grief her baby son died but her bark is bold ruthless But really my opinion about both Lizzie and Mattie changed and inter changed over time I felt I grew with both of these women and grew to understand them why Mattie might be sarcastic and Lizzie not The history and real people Lizzie and Mattie and others Reverend James Toney Maggie Mae Upchurch etc was fascinating to learn about Sad toojust can t get away from the sadness The author s notes at the end are deeply feltThe entire book is excellent I ll continue to read anything Julie Kibler writesThank You Netgalley Crown Publishing and Big Congrats to Julie Kibler

Julie Kibler ¸ 3 review characters ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ¸ Julie Kibler review Home for Erring and Outcast Girls 103 University librarian uncovers the hidden histories of the two troubled women as she stumbles upon the cemetery on the home's former grounds and begins to comb through its archives in her library Pulled by an indescribable connection what Cate discovers about their stories leads her to confront her own heartbreaking past and to reclaim the life she thought she'd let go forever With great pathos and powerful emotional resonance Home for Erring and Outcast Girls explores the dark roads that lead us to ruin and the paths we take to return to ourselve Based on the synopsis this was a book that I was really looking forward to reading I love historical fiction books and I thought a story about the real life Berachah Home sounded like it had a lot of potential Unfortunately I had a hard time connecting with the characters so this turned out to just be an okay readThe Berachah Home was pretty uniue back in the early 1900s Let s face it if a single woman back then was pregnant she wasn t treated too kindly Many women were sent away to live in homes with other pregnant women until they gave birth and put the babies up for adoption What made the Berachah Home different from these other places was the women there were allowed to keep their babies and got the opportunity to learn job skills which would help them eventually find employment outside the home This book goes back and forth between different time periods and characters Lizzie Bates and Mattie McBride both come to the Berachah Home in the early 1900s and they form a friendship that will follow them thru some rough times The present day storyline follows Cate Sutton a university librarian who is fascinated in learning about the home and the women who lived there Cate has dealt with her fair share of heartbreak herself My main issue with the book was even though the storyline taking place almost a century ago grabbed me from the start I had pretty much lost interest by about a third of the way in Other than a few moments here and there I just wasn t feeling an emotional attachment to either of the women And for the life of me I can t figure out why but I guess the reality of it is not every character I read about is going to work for me I was interested in Cate Sutton s backstory and what led her to pretty much being out on her own So I m left feeling slightly disappointed this wasn t a better read for me but on the positive side I got to learn a little bit about the Berachah Home Thank you to First to Read for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy I was under no obligation to post a review and all views expressed are my honest opinion
