Fae was the middle child of a brood of children her mother and father produced on their mountain farm in the early 1900s. Fae, a fiery redhead, always thinking she deserved a better life and demanding things her way, wanted off the farm more than anything, and into the glorious big city life in Atlanta, Georgia. She was willing to do almost anything and everything to gain the life of luxury she wanted and thought was owed to her. Will Fae be able to tone down her fiery red temper and live the life of a true Southern lady, or will her emotions and temper be her own worst enemy?

Never Isn't Long Enough by F. Diane Pickett is a historical novel introducing readers to a large, slightly dysfunctional family in the early 1900s, and their many woes concerning their middle child, Fae. The author's main focus is essentially on two characters, but intertwines many others who define and make the main characters who they are. Each chapter has a brief historical lesson or introduction, followed by the actual story. Although the characters are fictitious, the facts the author includes throughout are true, giving the story an enlightening and refreshing feel as a reader gains more understanding of the time period of the story. Sing your way through the gospel thriving socials during the early 1900s, dance your way towards the roaring '20s, get a glimpse of the Great Depression, and a feel of post WWII new America in F. Diane Pickett's exciting, intriguing tale, Never Isn't Long Enough.
