Ociee on Her Own: A Novel
Readers of A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street have been anxious to hear more of the darling Ociee Nash, an imaginative and charming girl who lived at the beginning of the twentieth century. Having moved to Asheville, North Carolina, following the death of her mother, Ociee now returns to her father's new residence and to life as it was before. Only things are very different now. The farm is gone, her brothers are growing up, her father's life has changed, and she must leave her Aunt Mamie, Mr. Lynch, and her friend Elizabeth. Ociee returns home and gives life a twist that only this blonde, curly-haired girl can. While Ociee is glad to be home amidst her loved ones, she will have an encounter that will change her life. As lyrical and emotional as A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street, Milam McGraw Propst has penned a exuberant story of growing up, of hope, and of love.
