Tucker’s Way (the Tucker series book one)

Tuckers Way cover

 

After enduring a childhood of horrific abuse and crushing poverty, Tucker seeks refuge in her rural Tennessee home. The three grandchildren she is raising are her only connection to the outside, and her demeanor is purposefully rough. But her world is turned upside down when a new neighbor, Ella, moves into the old McDaniel place next door.

Ella seeks solace on the same country road after overcoming cancer. Although she is Tucker’s peer agewise, she was raised in a world of privilege and opportunity. Still, Ella shares a tragic part of Tucker’s experience—she also suffered abuse. Hers was at the hands of her husband, a prominent judge in the community and Tucker’s sworn enemy.

When Tucker finds herself at risk of losing custody of her beloved youngest grandchild and worse, the child’s mother is murdered, she draws support and strength from her new friendship with Ella. These two women from disparate backgrounds form a fierce bond, and they weather life’s storms together with faith, love, and determination.

    We read this book for our book club and are looking for discussion questions. Any ideas?

      Hi, Sandie. I’m very pleased that you book club chose Tucker’s Way. I like to keep up with where Tucker fans are. Do you mind telling me where are you located?
      Would you like to try and have the book club interview me online for one of your meetings?

        We are in New Freedom, Pennsylvania. Right now we are just looking for discussion questions – do you know if anyone has ever done any for this book?

        There have been several book clubs locally that have reviewed my book, but I don’t know that they have taken this approach (which I like, by the way).
        Here are some questions you might consider:
        Have you ever known someone like Tucker?
        Have you ever judged someone based on what you heard about them, rather than taking the time to know them.
        Did Tucker’s story change how you view the poor? If so, in what way? If not, why not?
        Tucker is not an easy character to like, especially early in the story. What made you keep reading the book rather than quitting? What was the first hint for you that Tucker might have another side to her besides the brusque side?
        Favorite scene in the book?

        I hope this helps, Sandie. Let me know how it goes.
