Sand Against the Wind
Nettie meets an irresistible rogue, and after a whirlwind wooing in the 1929 Appalachian summer, finds herself living at Millview, a farm located miles from everything she loves. She struggles to make her marriage work despite the ever-present shadow of Lurania, Millard's mother, and Herbert, his first cousin. Nettie resolves to be a good wife, but plans to leave as soon as she has the money. Faced with an insolent Depression and Millard's intermittent rages, Nettie plans a new life for her children as she conceals her own. "It's one of the best historical novel manuscripts I've received in a long time." Wm. Greenleaf, Editor, Writer's Digest.
