LETTERS FROM MISS EDNA

The II5 letters in this book were written by a woman whose life spanned the center of the twentieth century. Hers is a story of ordinary people - how they lived and loved and worked and died - during a period of extraordinary change. As Miss Edna's life unfolds, she is caught up in the abnormal rate of change that moved the world through the century. Her experiences move from slates to computers, from travel in buggies to airplanes, from homes with wood cook stoves to modern electric facilities. Read about the trials of The Great Depression, the tragedies of World War II, the horror of death by cancer. Feel the love of family and the value of friendships.

Cover Image For THE VIGIL

THE VIGIL

Fleeing Atlanta and an emotionally abusive marriage, Imogene McBride is heading west with her precocious, beautiful teenage daughter, Cora, when their car breaks down in the tiny North Texas town of Agatite. While her mother sits out its repair on a bench on the courthouse lawn, Cora wanders off to buy ice cream, enters a drugstore―and disappears without a trace. Initially, believing Cora is playing a prank, an agitated Imma storms the drugstore and then the sheriff’s office demanding answers. When answers don’t come, she returns to the park bench to wait, her annoyance turning to fear, and then obsession. So begins Imma’s vigil and the classic first novel of Reynolds’s Sandhill Chronicles, a timeless testament to place and character. As her waiting stretches from days and weeks into years, Imma becomes―as the town eccentric if not madwoman―a pivotal institution in Agatite and the lives of its inhabitants. Most affected by Imma’s obsession is Sheriff Ezra Holmes, a widower who has kept his emotional life in check since the death of his beloved wife. Now his controlled life is disrupted by the woman on the bench, whose presence compels and arouses Ezra in ways mysterious even to himself. As he works to unravel the mystery of Cora’s disappearance, a bond develops between the aging sheriff and the eccentric woman who brings Ezra both new hope and forces him to confront his own pain. An absorbing blend of mystery, psychological thriller, and character study, this tale of one woman’s obsession and the spell it casts is utterly unforgettable. [An] engrossing first novel. [Reynolds] knows how to create and sustain tension without resorting to sensationalism. His book, like its protagonist, has a stubborn integrity that you can’t help admiring. [Imma’s] metamorphosis . . . is absorbing. ―New York Times
