Description

Charlotte Miller's debut novel, Behold, This Dreamer, was a regional success story in 2000-2001. She continues now with the second installment of her trilogy exploring romance, culture, and place in the Depression-era Deep South. In the new book, Janson Sanders and his new bride, Elise, have been exiled by her wealthy father and have returned, penniless and landless, to his poor-but-proud relatives in Alabama. There, they struggle to build a life for themselves and to recover the family farm stolen from Janson by an unscrupulous local landowner.show more

Review quote

"Invokes the deep rural South, and a time, a place, and a people so accurately that one can almost hear the beat of a heart, the touch of a hand on a cheek. As a major chronicler of our near past, with both its darkness and light, Miller has penned a novel in which the lives of the characters soon become almost as real as our own." --Rosemary Daniell, author of Fatal Flowers: On Sin, Sex and Suicide in the Deep South "Has what most current novels sadly lack: a strong narrative line. The novel should please readers, as well as reliably inform them about the deplorable economic conditions that, during the 1920s and '30s, prevailed in Alabama and other parts of the South." --Madison Jones, author of Last Things "Miller knows her people, the poor white farmers of hill-country Alabama. James Agee showed us their faces in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. This writer reveals their hearts and their dreams. It is a page turner, an unforgettable read." --Helen Blackshear, former Alabama Poet Laureate and author of The Creek Captivesshow more
