From Library Journal:

This is the second entertaining and well-written book in Algonquin's new series. Clyde Bresee's Sea Island Yankee ( LJ 5/15/86) was the first. Buck tells the story of Oxford, Georgia, a small Southern town, at the beginning of the 20th century when "God was definitely on the job in his heaven, not too far away from Oxford, and all was right with the world." His is a nostalgic look at life in small-town America shortly before the country was set on its industrial course. The author presents a rich, evocative account emphasizing the everyday existence in church, school, and home. Strongly recommended for public libraries. Ron Chepesiuk, Winthrop Coll. Lib., Rock Hill, S.C.
