C.V. Smith, an educator for over 30 years, is having a book giveaway for her children’s historical fiction mystery entitled Nettie Parker’s Backyard. With a bit of mystery and magic, she’s woven the timely themes of anti-bullying and tolerance toward all into a history lesson about African-American slavery and WWII and the Holocaust. Her main character, Nettie, is many things: she’s kind, mystical and heroic. But she’s got a problem she can’t seem to solve. Will her young friend, Halley, be able to help her uncover the mystery of statues that suddenly appear in her backyard? All is revealed in a surprise twist ending, proving love is the greatest force after all. Children (ages 9-13) and adults alike will find something they can take away from this story to cherish, whether it be a little romance, wartime adventure, or the “down-home” affection Nettie can’t help but spread to every reader.
