    You Can't Be Good All By Yourself

    CAROLINA is a collection of four ¿inspirational¿ novelettes set in the Southern Appalachian Mountains near Asheville, North Carolina. Each is about families and individuals beset by moral challenges not always of their own choosing. -- MOUNTAIN MAN tells of interactions within the second and third generations of an ongoing feud between the Briskins and the Maxwells. SMOKY MOUNTAIN SUNRISE narrates Andre¿s efforts to avoid marrying Celeste by persuading Rae to pretend to his guardian to be his girl friend. In CALL OF THE MOUNTAIN unwed Carol Bennett gives her sister Beth two weeks to agree to adopt the child Carol will bear in six months--or Carol will have an abortion. The theme of the fourth tale, WHITER THAN SNOW, is deception and its consequences. Why can¿t scrupulously honest but emotionally crippled Rick Jenkins bring himself to admit to Jennifer Collins that it was he who ran a stop sign and slammed into her car, breaking her arm and making it impossible for her to survive the blizzard of the century without his uninvited help? ---In each tale a young, unmarried woman summons up unsuspected powers of will and imagination to solve increasingly complex problems. Unable to surmount the challenges without outside help, she finds both opposition and support among male admirers, female rivals and friends as well as sometimes close, sometimes aloof or estranged relatives. It becomes clear to the heroine that her only totally reliable helper is God, whose majesty and power are revealed in the thunderstorms, whiteouts, long vistas, trees and wildflowers of the lush, rugged mountains in and near Asheville.
