Back of Book Blurb – Josephine: Red Dirt and Whiskey

In honor of being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel for revisions and being fairly sure it isn’t a train, here is the back of the book blurb for the revised edition of Josephine: Red Dirt and Whiskey –

It’s the Great Depression in rural northeast Texas, and not much has changed, except in the life of Josephine Killian. After losing her mother and her aunt, Josephine finds herself alone and independent. Loneliness leads her to sacrifice her freedom for the bonds of marriage, and life becomes routine. But, when a mysterious stranger, Ethan, appears, he draws out what Josephine fights to keep hidden. Ethan opens up the doors to lust, secrecy and addiction that could lead to Josephine’s self-destruction. Will the people she knows from church, her neighbors in Hefner Falls, and her own desire to turn away from evil be enough to overcome the temptations Ethan offers? Or, has Josephine gone too far to turn back?

 

And, to say thanks for reading, a free short story on Smashwords – When I Met Crazy in the Morning: Mae’s Tale

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950
