Appalachian SpringA book by Eleanor Gustafson
When young Jennifer Darrow leaves her city classroom to teach in a small West Virginia hamlet, she finds more than her place of residence changing. In fact, it seems everyone wants her to become what they think she should be. Beautiful Nola Mae, lover of fine music and literature, scorns Jennifer’s lifestyle and “lack of aesthetic appreciation.” Corey, Jennifer’s college friend, now a minister, sees her as the perfect pastor’s wife. And Tikki, the local “wild mountain man,” challenges her in a personal vendetta that both frightens and fascinates her. To the very last sentence, Appalachian Spring is filled with drama, suspense, mystery, humor, and romance. The surprising climax of this wonderfully warm story reveals what Jennifer has been learning all along: things and people are not always what they seem.
“I have loved this book ever since I heard it read aloud on a Christian radio station in 1989. I had to have it. Ms. Gustafson brings you into the story. You see the town; you know the people. And right along with Jennifer, you find out about Tikki and can’t help feeling the same way.” ~ Linda
