Buckhouseby Martha Sue Collins, Martha S. Collins
Rugged and hard working, the O'Toole family has made Union Springs, Louisiana their home for three generation. Battered by an unusually harsh winter and devastated by the untimely death of three of their six children, the O'Tooles demonstrate the indomitable love and strength that has sustained them for close to a century. Together they help build Buckhouse, the thriving northwest Louisiana settlement of close-knit families, and through generosity, compassion, and integrity, become the backbone of the community.
Inspired by actual people, places, and events, Collins weaves historical fact with a wealth of family lore and fiction. unpretentiously portrayed, Collins' characters harken readers back to an era when honesty, integrity, and genuine concern for your neighbors were abundant in thriving communities. 'Buckhouse' is a testament to the hard working families and values upon which America was founded. She was the heritage of actual Buckhouse families and so lasting is their legacy that- generations later- one of its granddaughters is compelled to tell the story.
