   Amnesia
      Beyond the Sea 

Jennifer Andrews was twenty-eight years old, and on her honeymoon when she found herself a mere speck in the ocean eighteen miles from Maui. A shrill shriek of terror escaped her — then a second scream, louder than then the first, when an enormous wave hit her hard. She surfaced, sputtering and choking, her head bobbing about. She’d fallen overboard in the middle of a horrific storm, a disastrous turn of events that worsened when she realized she wasn’t wearing a life jacket.

As the wind howled and the storm raged, Jennifer felt the first nudge on her leg, and her mind screamed ‘shark.’ She panicked, thrashing about, kicking her legs and screaming. But her fear subsided when she realized she was surrounded by twelve Bottlenose Dolphins, who quickly took control.

The Widow of Maury County

Love story

1921 Maury County, Tennessee

In Maury County, Tennessee, in the 1920s, life is determined by one's status and reputation. But in the hills where the cougars scream at night, and the moonshiners make white lightening, life is about surviving anyway you can. Even if it means marrying someone you don't love. 

 

Two weeks before her fourteenth birthday, Pricilla Powell married Lee Dodd from Maury County, Tennessee. He was her first cousin, sinfully good-looking tall, and slender with raven black hair and a charm about him that women loved. He came from a family of gunslinging moonshiners, and Pricilla came from a family of foot-stomping evangelists. It was a House of Cards marriage. Seventeen years later, Lee would die by drowning----pushed in the river when a craps game went bad.

That's when Pricilla cut loose.

A historical novel based on a true story.
