Product Description

An Oprah's Book Club Selection

After losing both her father and brother before turning 17, Julie faces fire, flood, grifters, sickness, and starvation with grim determination and remarkable stamina. By capturing the earthy details of rural life, including raw, riveting accounts of everything from hog slaughtering to childbirth, Robert Morgan weaves the human and the heroic that coexist in every individual.


“Jill Hill narrates the audio book with a convincing accent that will have you thinking and talking with a drawl once youve finished listening. Her performance of Julies stark sentences captures the tone perfectly and will make you forget that Julie is indeed a fictional character.””
