• Description : A stunning, heartbreaking novel about an intrepid girl who challenges the injustice of the adult world - a triumph of imagination and storytelling. It is 1970. 'Bean' Holladay is twelve and her sister Liz fifteen when their artistic mother Charlotte, a woman who 'flees every place she's ever lived at the first sign of trouble', takes off to 'find herself'. She leaves the girls enough money for food to last a month or two. But when Bean gets home from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz board a bus from California to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying antebellum mansion that has been in the family for generations. An impetuous optimist, Bean discovers who her father was and learns many stories about why their mother left Virginia in the first place. Money is tight, so Liz and Bean start babysitting and doing office work for Jerry Madox, foreman of the mill in town, a big man who bullies workers, tenants and his wife. Bean adores her whip-smart older sister, inventor of word games, reader of Edgar Allan Poe, non-conformist. But when school starts in the autumn, it is Bean who easily adjusts and makes friends, and Liz who becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens between Liz and Maddox... 'Tragic and comic at the same time... an outrageous story, one that will break your heart' Sunday Independent 'There isn't a shred of self-pity in this deeply compassionate book' Marie Claire ***Half Broke Horses (S&S, 2009) 'Has immense power and readibility...

• Description : Three Civil War deserters, dispossessed of all virtue and living on the fringe of humanity, kidnap a young boy with the sole purpose of conscripting him into their degenerate band of misfits. Tethered about the neck with a rawhide lace and made to bid the commands of General Ike Smith, the boy's survival depends upon his ability to adapt to their malevolent ways a lesson he learns quickly. He abandons the teachings of his clergyman father, and embraces the mindless violence to which he is exposed. For all he finds distasteful in the three men he has grown to despise, he also finds he has an unexplained affinity for the power that resides in the violence that defines them. The boy's life, cast into darkness and evil, promises no chance for salvation. His single opportunity for redemption may well lie with an old Indian horse trainer and a small band of "unbroke" horses. [...] by Publisher : 'Goldminds Publishing'
