Description

“A compelling story you won’t want to miss! Well told and deeply true to its time and place.” —Haywood Smith, author of Queen Bee of Mimosa Branch and The Red Hat Club Even the best-kept secrets must be revealed… Seventeen-year-old Adie Jenkins is newly married and newly pregnant, though not necessarily in that order. Unready for fatherhood, her skirt-chasing husband isn’t much help. But in this stunning tale that redefines intimacy, love, and family, Adie discovers hope where she least expects it: from her sweet neighbor Murphy, from the world-wise midwife Willa Mae, and in the worn pages of the diary of a slave girl—a girl who is much closer to Adie than she thinks. Praise for Cold Rock River “An intricate novel about the mysterious ways we are all connected in the human endeavors of truth, love, longing, and loss.” —Patti Callahan Henry, bestselling author of When Light Breaks “Warm, fresh, funny—the characters leap off the page! Miles is a fascinating new voice in Southern fiction. Readers will rejoice.” —Karin Gillespie, author of Bet Your Bottom Dollar “Jackie Lee Miles is a wise and perceptive writer with a keen understanding of human frailties.” —Julie Cannon, author of Truelove and Homegrown Tomatoes
