The Hermit King--#56 finished

The Hermit King was a good story, only about 125 pages.  The book also had 5 other short stories, they were just okay.  The Hermit King was a good story about 2 kids, boy & girl around age 12.  This is in small town Alabama, he lives there & she comes to visit her 2 aunts that are basically spinsters.  They really have no idea in raising her.  She lives with her dad, her mother died, I believe.  The boy lives with his mom and grandmother.  Mom is a widow, dad died in WWII, which is still going on.  Mom doesn't really have it together & grandma kind of runs things.  Well, kids get in trouble and decide to run away.  All of this in the back drop of the South in the 1940s.  Interesting story & interesting times.  Other stories basically around the South too at different times but to me not as interesting.

I have posted it on PBS, it is the only copy in system now so I think it will move sometime.
