Cotton Rock

( 1 )

Overview

Early one morning, I began writing down things my Grandmother (a woman with grit and courage), used to say. It's as though she stood up on the page and said, "Well, it's about time you let me talk--cause I've got a lot to say!" I decided to let her tell the story of Cotton Rock, and I placed it in the Ozarks on the White River (my paternal grandparents and greatgrand parents actually lived in the Ozarks).

Like the White River that once forged its way across the formidable dome ...

Overview

Early one morning, I began writing down things my Grandmother (a woman with grit and courage), used to say. It's as though she stood up on the page and said, "Well, it's about time you let me talk--cause I've got a lot to say!" I decided to let her tell the story of Cotton Rock, and I placed it in the Ozarks on the White River (my paternal grandparents and greatgrand parents actually lived in the Ozarks).

Like the White River that once forged its way across the formidable dome of Ozark bedrock, scraping back the forest and scratching off the wilderness to reach its destination with the sea, Cotton Rock traces the life-journeys of the people living along its banks, their love and losses, their hope and heartaches, their glory and shame, a story told with generous helpings of Ozark folklore and humor. Although the plot is fictionalized and the names are changed, the stories are flesh and blood true.

    A Superb Novel: A Symphony of characters, earth and water.

    Readers who love characters with depth and soul, written with compassion while revealing the struggle for family connection and loving relationships,will love this novel. At the same time the struggle between "good and evil" is realistically explored.

    The author not only dispels the pejorative myth of the "hillbilly", but does it with eloquence and lyricism. In this novel, she has painted an impassioned symphony of Ozark character stories. The intrinsic wisdom of Ozark Folkways is interwoven with the palpable characters of the Ozark Earth, the Ozark Sky and the Ozark River. The book provides a feast of images and is an elegantly drawn story for those who love the art of story-telling in its finest form. The author's writing is overflowing with talent for poetic expression. Each paragraph is packed with multi-leveled dimensions informing the reader of characters spirit, thinking, and feeling that shows the Ozark peoples' splendid, intuitive, humanity.

    As a person who lived in the Ozarks for 13 years, I was reminded of the many kitchen tables I sat around enjoying a very valued Ozark custom, the Art of Visiting. Whether we were preparing vegetables and fruit for canning, or eating from the bounty of the garden, we always were working on life's problems with gentle wisdom pouring from the elders. I highly recommend this book!
