Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker

It is thrilling to discover a well-written debut novel and that is just what Little Giant is – well-written.

I found Truly’s story compelling and the plot twists and ending were engaging. The ending surprised and satisfied me.

While looking at the back cover I realized Sara Gruen, Joshilyn Jackson and Stephanie Kallos all contributed blurbs of praise and are all authors I’ve enjoyed. So it should be no surprise to me how I enjoyed this story.

Truly takes your from her birth to her present day – and I love it when an author crafts a well done prologue, with enough to get you hooked but not enough to give everything away – I always wonder, do they write the prologue last or do they begin with it?

Truly is born large – a bowling ball – and contains to rapidly grow and become larger. Her father dies an early death, leaving her to be cared for by a poor farm family and her older sister, the beautiful Serena Jane to a life of privelege. However, her sister’s beauty and the son of the town’s doctor set out on a course of events which changes Aberdeen County.
