Polyester Pride
by Kathryn Davis




Overview -
Lisa Jones had always willingly been Daddy's little princess. A product of one of the most economically deprived and socially intolerant areas of the country-the clamflats along the shore of northern Maine-she learned to hold all men up on a pedestal. For the women of her culture, marriage was the pinnacle to be attained in life. Lisa has a rude awakening when she marries her high school sweetheart, Bill Munson, and finds herself living with an alcoholic who roughs her up regularly. A tailspin of increasing physical abuse and social isolation forces her onto a rocky path where, against formidable odds, she struggles forward to find her own inner strength, dignity, and freedom from her past. Polyester Pride is a moving story of women's resilience, and their capability to fight oppression in its many forms and spring back from it, like the fabric polyester itself. Author Kathryn Ellen Davis has pulled from her own experience to create a vivid cast of characters who move through a little-known but fascinating rural world.
