Life is hard. This is not a secret, its a fact. But the truth is, life is harder for some than others, and it has certainly presented special challenges at different times throughout history. For the lucky ones though, the challenges are secondary to the love and laughter a close family can bring.

Such is the setting for Marlene Roses debut novel, "Seven, No More." Based on her own experiences as a child in a Southern mill town, "Seven, No More" is the tale of Anna Grace and her family, as they struggle and toil in a cotton mill village during the Great Depression. While money is tight, debts are large, and the prospect of being free from the mill and the company store seems like a distant dream, Anna Graces family never loses sight of what is really important, for they believe that as long as they have each other, anything is possible.

Funny, poignant and full of affection, "Seven, No More" is the tale of a family who never gives up. Anna Grace and her family offer hope and reassurance that it doesnt matter who you are or where you are; all that matters is where youre going. Theirs is a tale that is sure to entertain, inspire and uplift the reader from the first page to the last.

UNFORTUNATELY I bought this book on a whim. The subject matter AND the book jacket reminded me of the mill village that I lived in as a child in North Carolina. Both of my parents' families were textile mill workers during (and after) the Great Depression. I found the prose to be poorly crafted and the book to be poorly edited--if it was edited at all. If you are looking for the experience of living in a mill village, this book is not going to invoke that feeling. It will only leave you feeling frustrated.

After reading "Seven, No More" I felt like I had lived through another time and place. Mrs. Rose portrayal of a small NC town during the depression is insightful and so descriptive that I felt like I had lived through it with her. I came to understand and know all of the characters and became attached to them as they experienced life happening around them which was difficult at times but full of love. This book had me laughing one minute and crying the next. I believe this book is a great work which deserves to be read by anyone interested in love, family and the persuit of greater things in life. A five star by far!!!

The book is written in a 2nd grade manner. It is very simplistic with numerous errors in grammar. The story really never goes anywhere. It drags with numerous repetitions and seems to be scattered in frame and development. While the characters are sincere, you never really buy into what is happening. The main character, Anna Grace, seems to be taken with herself and puts herself on a pedestal. The story is simple and unappealing, cannot recommend as a read for any level.
