For those who enjoy Civil War history, romance, and a tale set in lush mountain settings, a new novel, Madam’s Creek, by Summers County resident (and WV Writers member) Betsy Reeder released mid-October. A launch party has been set for Saturday, November 11, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., at the Summers County Public Library.
Author Donna Meredith gave Madam’s Creek high praise, saying, “In the tradition of New York Times bestseller, Cold Mountain, Reeder delivers a richly satisfying tale set in the hills of what soon would become West Virginia. Madam’s Creek explores the power of love and the sting of betrayal in a land shattered by war. The magnificent landscape of the New River serves as backdrop for the tender love story of Marcus and Maylene, fully human characters sure to win your hearts.”
During the launch party, there will be a brief talk and reading at 1:30 by the author, followed by the opportunity for discussion and purchase of signed books.
Come on out for a celebration of our region, which has often been overlooked in its grit, beauty, and historic significance.
Madam’s Creek is available nationally in bookstores and online retailers as of October 15, 2017. Canterbury House Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-94540100-8, trade soft cover, $14.95.
