Overview

Any successful scholar will make personal sacrifices to enhance his research. But most are never expected to include a suspect marriage to a barefoot hill girl. Musicologist, J. Monroe Farley hopes to prove that the wilds of the Ozark Mountains preserved the language and music of an era gone by.  Hill girl, Meggie Best only hopes for a handsome prince to make her dreams come true. Neither expects to have life suddenly upended by a jar of bad piccalilli and a skunk.

This story set in the Ozarks of 1903, recalls mountain ways and wiles as unique as the music the traveling scholar seeks. Publisher's Weekly awarded a starred review and described the sotry as "rich and heady as a jug of mountain 'donk' - and just as hard to put down."

Pamela Morsi takes you to thr Ozark Mts Arkansas & teaches you the songs & way of life of the hill people through the eyes & notes of a scholarly New Englander who falls hopelessly in love with a barefoot mountain girl. I bow respectfully to the absorbing writing of Pamela Morsi. Her introduction of Simple Jess makes me eager to read his story next.
