Overview
"There are diamonds in the red clay of northeast Alabama. Delaney is one of them." When you meet Delaney Robinson, she is a two-year-old with a serious attachment to her wonderful great-grandmother, who guides her through life with the wisdom of a nonagenarian. Margaret's reminiscences, along with the rest you will read, tell the story of how this adorable little girl came to be. There is murder, mayhem, humor, romance-and a bit of heartbreak. The stories are about her parents, grandparents, distant ancestors, and family friends, from Delaney's Irish forebears and how they settled in Alabama to a chapter written entirely from the point of view of a Confederate battle sword hanging on her grandfather's wall. This novel contains the award-winning chapters "Jewels" and "In the Heat of the Moment." Praise for these stories: "A wonderful facility for invoking mood via description. Love your character's wry humor." - Author Joshilyn Jackson "In the Heat of the Moment holds the reader's attention with well-placed hooks. Droll and darkly comic." -Brian Lister, Biscuit Publishing
