Render Unto the Valley

I'm thrilled with the cover of my new book. The photograph was taken on Route 74 in the Hickory Nut Gorge looking out at the Fairview valley. The book will be available at book stores and on-line in late January. Researching this novel was enthralling. This valley is so rich in history. The challenges that the early settlers faced in this often harsh, hard-scrabble environment forged a unique American character that exists to this day in these mountains, hamlets and farms.
