Dobyns Chronicles by Shirley McLain

I received a free copy from the author for an honest review. The opinion is my own.

Learned about life the early 1900’s by following Charley Dobyns and his family as they live in Southeast Texas and Northeast Oklahoma. The writing is smooth and easy to read. There are no twists or turns in the story. you will rejoice when things are great and cry when things go wrong.
Charley is sixteen when his parents died of yellow fever. His brother David is twelve and their sister Viola is fours old. After burying their folks, they have a council to decide what is next. They planned to go to Oklahoma to the Holmes Ranch. Charley hopes to work on the ranch as a hand. The journey begins until his death. This is a novel. I recommend it.
