Item description for Where the Meadowlark Sings by Bowman H. Alice...
The year was 1865, the Civil War had ended and there was poverty in the South. It was a time when the going was tough, but the tough got going. Martha and Lou, two sisters in the small Southern town of Ashland, fall in love with two young soldiers who had fought the war. Where the Meadowlark Sings is the story of these two sisters, their lives, hopes and despair. When Lou moves up to the North, after marriage, the sisters promise to stay in touch. Neither of the girls realizes it, but this promise will be kept, and their families remain close for three generations and more. Alice H. Bowman creates a world that is now in the past, and a way of life that will be unfamiliar to many. It is a story of strong family ties, and the undeniable feelings of love that engulf the body and soul.

Story of a family Jan 6, 2003
This is an excellent book about a family who with many trials and tribulations stick together and remain faithful to each other. It captures your attention immediately. You stay with it because you want to find out what exactly happens to each of them. In fact they begin to seem like your own family. I reccommend it as a book for all ages.
BETTER THAN GONE WITH THE WIND! Dec 5, 2002
Tears filled my eyes as I read this wonderful book. The colorful prose warmed my heart. The visual imagary was pricless. I felt as if I were there!!! The wonderful setting of beautiful North Carolina is well drawn. The characters are complex but believable. Alice Bowman is an unknown of fantastic skill. She should be on the NY Times best seller list. I am so looking forward to further books from this great talent.
