Wild Card Quilt: Taking a Chance on Home
Hardback. Price includes shipping within US. Signed & dated (with place) by author.
Craving a life built on "land, history, and blood," Janisse Ray returns to South Georgia from Montana and moves into the family's rundown 1920s farmhouse in Appling County. There Ray rediscovers the pleasures of country life -- a Thanksgiving syrup boil, alligator trapping, and neighbors - as well as the dysfunction of rural community. Wild Card Quilt is the story of her return and the adventures that follow as she ponders whether she will stay "and die where seven generations of grandmothers had died" before her or whether she will leave again.
