Earlier this year I had the pleasure of ‘staying in’ with Lindy Keane Carter here on Linda’s Book Bag as she told me all about her novel Annaliese From Off. You can see what we got up to here.
Today I’m delighted to spotlight the next book from Lindy, Annaliese Sound and True. To celebrate Annaliese Sound and True Lindy will gift a copy of the book to the first three new sign ups to her newsletter and you can find that sign up here.
Annaliese Sound and True is available for purchase here.
Annaliese Sound and True
One woman. Ancient forests. Loggers on every slope.
In 1903, a widow awaits the birth of her third child in a north Georgia town. Annaliese Stregal has inherited her husband’s lumber company, seventeen thousand mountain acres, and his illegitimate child in her household. Originally from Kentucky, she planned to return there after the birth, but loggers are slashing the forests that she has come to love. A man who has quietly loved her for years asks her to sell the company and marry him. Instead, she begins running it with a controversial approach: America’s first scientific forestry principles.
Just as her baby is born with a life-threatening defect, a desperate logger arrives with plans for her ancient trees. As new strengths emerge in Annaliese, she astonishes herself by pursuing erotic pleasure and revenge.
In this sequel to Annaliese From Off, the woman who reluctantly left the parlors of Louisville now blazes a trail in a male-dominated world.
“Mother, lumber mill owner, innovator, Annaliese discovers her strengths and passion as she thwarts male domination and greed. You’ll cheer her on every step of the way. Annaliese, Sound and True is a beautiful, evocative book from an important new voice in fiction.”
— Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author
