  My first novel, about one woman’s life 

She grew up on a hard knock farm in Arkansas and being married off, at the age of thirteen, to the father of one of her classmates did not set Augusta up for a life of marital bliss. Abandoned by her second husband in 1920s Detroit, with four children to provide for, Augusta made a decision that she would live with for the rest of her life.
