Overview

The story takes place between the years 1926-1946 and is written in the language of the mountain people of that time and those with the beautiful Southern drawl from the Deep South that moved into the area. It is a return to the times that use to be, but will never be again. Two families, the Kidwell’s from Alabama and the Wilson’s from Tennessee and Ohio move into a small town deep inside the Great Smokey Mountains called Hamilton, Tennessee, from different backgrounds and for different reason, but with only one motive, to make a new life for themselves. The children grow up sharing life’s experiences with each other and their newfound friends. Love, marriage, births, disappointments and death become a part of their lives. The loving parents struggle with the hardships of a deep depression that gripped the country at that time. With the onset of World War Two many changes come into their lives, some good, some bad, but they would survive because they already knew what hard times were like. The Kidwell’s from Alabama are loggers that come into the Cove to harvest much needed timber for their Company. The Wilson’s move back to Tennessee from Ohio to get away from the harsh winters that cut into their earning power as carpenters. The Patriarch of the Wilson family must give up his work as a carpenter for health reasons, buys a small farm and returns to his younger days as a tobacco farmer.

Lost Cove is a wonderful story about a time that was but will never be again. It takes you back in time when things were much different than they are now. A time when people cared for each other and worried about their future.
