HAPPILY, NOW IN PAPERBACK
Verna Ware starts out as a girl and takes a short cut to adulthood. Outrage and fear make her strong. VERNA WARE’S LONG WAY HOME is an emotionally rich, straight-shooting story set in the American frontier.
The novel has a homey reality, a heart-warming simplicity, a lulling cadence from an earlier time, until BAM, the shock of Texas action and consequence come alive. Verna’s sweat and courage display her passionate thirst for a moral compass in the old West. Four generations of tough Texas women stay the course. The canvas is large, but all the characters are life-size in this lyrical tale by M.D. Poole.
