RE-EDITED AS A 2ND EDITION
WITH NEW MATERIAL AND AN AUTHOR Q&A
I am so excited to share with you the 2nd edition of The Edge of Nowhere! Since it’s original release in 2016, I’ve parted on friendly terms with the original publisher and my current publisher has picked it up and allowed me to tweak all those things I wish we’d tweaked before its first release! Under the editorial guidance of the amazing Michelle Halket at Central Avenue Publishing, this 2nd Edition of The Edge of Nowhere includes brand new content in the form of added scenes and dialogue, “tighter” writing, a gorgeous new cover, and a new Question & Answer section related to the real people who inspired the story. Fans of the original edition will find the same riveting story, but improved through better writing and improved content!
Despised and feared by her sprawling family, Victoria Hastings Harrison Greene refuses to go quietly from her long life without revealing the secrets she’s held locked away for more than fifty years—the same secrets consistent with the rumors her grandchildren whisper behind her back during family gatherings.Widowed with nine children during the one-two punch of The Great Depression and the Oklahoma Dust Bowl, Victoria made harsh choices—desperate choices that reduced a once soft and loving young woman into the reviled matriarch she is today. Hers is the story of one woman’s courage in the midst of overwhelming adversity, and her absolute conviction to never stop fighting…no matter what it takes.
