I am simply in awe of the serious nature of Judy Christie's third book in the Green Series. While I enjoyed Book Two, "Goodness Gracious Green", and look forward to reading the first in the series, "Gone to Green", I am in deep thought and contemplation over, "The Glory of Green". Christie has detailed every aspect of reacting to a natural disaster such as the one found in this book - a tornado. I read each page in absolute amazement at how carefully she detailed people's reactions and responses. The love of this community toward one another is typical of small town U.S.A. Wide-spread press release just this past year, 2011, reported similar disasters in several small towns of Alabama and Missouri, as well as other mideastern and coastal states. I have personally seen how people come together, not just in their surrounding areas, but all over the U.S.A. Some give of their time, others their money. This is an outstanding book from beginning to end: it includes weddings, deaths and heroism, but most of all, genuine love for the people of Green. Over and over, people put their own needs above their own. Jesus said it best, "He who is to be greatest among you, shall be servant to all." Well-written, unique story, well-scripted characters! Cudos for a job well-done, Ms. Judy Christie!
