"Twang" by Julie L. Cannon was a interesting fiction read of a twenty-three year old Jennifer Clodfelter who was from Blue Ridge, Georgia......who just knew she was to a a country music star...but what she found... was rejection even after all of her determination with her demo homemade tapes...still rejected by each and every music label in Nashville, Tennessee. However, even after all these rejections Jennifer would not give up and after three years it looked as if she was on a journey that would only lead her to the fame that she had wanted. Only was this really want Jennifer wanted?...now having all the fame and glitz and even the number one hits...what was up for her now? A decision would have to be made for Jennifer to "whether to sing her pain to a loving audience or find the courage and faith to face the music in the private studio of her heart." Now, this will be the time that you will have to pick up "Twang" to see what will happens to and for Ms. Jennifer Anne Clodfelter to be later known as Jenny Cloud. Honky Tonk Tomcat was Jenny's first single. "After 5 years, dozen of hit songs, two platinum albums and one particularly ugly romantic realationship".... was Jenny really happy?
The author did present a air of 'trusting in God and being able to forgive' was really the root of the story "Twang." I loved the frist person dialogue when the author was relating the Nashville floods that did have great affect of this storyline.
The characters which were well presented and seemed very real ..... Roy Durden (friend) Mike Flint (manager) and Tonilynn (hairdresser and friend), Bobby Lee, and Aint Gomer.
At first as I was reading through this novel I wasn't too sure I was going to enjoy "Twang" because it starts out a little slow but I am so glad that keep on reading because what I got from this novel left me in tears. Truly by the time I got to 'When the Music Calls Me Home' I was a goner! Now, I will stop here and only say please pick up this read... you will not be disappointed in the end.
This was a real heart felt read and if you are in for a good fiction read then I would recommend "Twang" for you.
