10 posts | 8 read | 6 to read
Beloved writer Sean Dietrichalso known as Sean of the Southwill warm your heart with this rich and nostalgic tale about community, kindness, and the meaning of the everyday incredible. In the small, sleepy town of Moab, Florida, folks live for ice cream socials, Jackie Robinson, and the local papers weekly gossip column. For decades, Sheriff Winston Browne has watched over Moab with a generous eye, and by now hes used to handling the daily dramas that keep life interesting for Moabs quirky residents. But just after Winston receives some terrible, life-altering news, a feisty little girl with mysterious origins shows up in his best friends henhouse. Suddenly Winston has a child in desperate need of protectionas well as a secret of his own to keep. With the help of Moabs goodhearted townsfolk, the humble and well-meaning Winston Browne still has some heroic things to do. He finds romance, family, and love in unexpected places. He stumbles upon adventure, searches his soul, and grapples with the past. In doing so, he just might discover what a life well-lived truly looks like. Sean Dietrich has written a home run of a novel with The Incredible Winston Browne. Every bit as wonderful as its title implies, its the story of Brownea principled, baseball-loving sheriffa precocious little girl in need of help, and the community that rallies around them. This warm, witty, tender novel celebrates the power of friendship and family to transform our lives. It left me nostalgic and hopeful, missing my grandfathers, and eager for baseball season to start again. I loved it. Ariel Lawhon, New York Times bestselling author of I Was Anastasia Make no mistake. [The Incredible Winston Browne] is a classic story, told by an expert storyteller.

A dying small town sheriff takes on a runaway young girl. This reads like a cup of hot chocolate in front of a fire. Lovable characters, baseball, and an abandoned mutt. The town is basically a southern Mayberry, but Winston is even more likeable than Andy Taylor. One of those books you don‘t want to end.

1. Tagged. I purchased a different book on Kindle (The Sacrifice of Lester Yates) and this came up as a similar title and it sounded good!

2. Currently, The Heavens May Fall, but I'm reading Tomorrow, and Tomorrow and Tomorrow right now and it's phenomenal!

3. Austin TX, Panama City Beach FL, Las Vegas NV (I'm not well traveled lol)

If you need a haven from the strife that we can‘t seem to avoid these days, follow me to Moab, Florida in this charming novel. We know from the first page that Sheriff Browne is dying, but his journey is a wise one, and he‘s blessed to be surrounded by friends, even when they drive him crazy AND, we learn how the NY Dodgers are closer to god than, well, god. We also discover that families are built, not born and that love is eternal. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

PSA: Put this on your TBR. It‘s going to be one of my top three books for me this year and it doesn‘t seem to be getting much buzz. Our book club read it together...and, let‘s just say, there‘s not many books that we all enjoy...and this one was one of the few! Read it. You‘ll love it!

First of all, Dixie beer is my favorite so the mention of it made me smile. And I grew up Methodist in FL, so I knew I‘d like this story. Oh the imagery, describing FL‘s fall colors as “the entire spectrum of mildew” is hilariously spot on. I loved all of the baseball talk and how it shaped and brought together so many people . What a great tribute to this small town sheriff who was bigger than life. Book #54 in 2021

Probably wouldn't have picked this up if a patron hadn't recommended it to me, but it was a good read! The writing style wavered between "actually voicey" and "trying too hard to be folksy," imo, but the characters were so good, and the cult thing was an unexpected yet interesting plotline. #historicalfiction #gododgers
