Love between two young members of long-feuding Southern families threatens to tear them all apart. Can love – and family secrets – survive the forbidden romance?
Watkinsville, GA, US., May 10, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - A long-simmering feud between families and a treasure with a stories history threaten to tear apart young lovers in the new historical fiction, The Alexander Treasure. The book is published by Outskirts Press.
In 1942, the farmers of rural Georgia depended on cotton as a major source of income. It was a way of life for most rural Georgians that quickly vanished when the government paid the farmers to put their farmland into the soil bank program. One-room schoolhouses and small communities where everyone knew everyone were part of those cotton-producing years. Friends and neighbors made it their business to learn your secrets and a man’s honor was paramount. This simple way of life is brought back to life in the pages of The Alexander Treasure.
The years during World War II are not easy years for Georgia farmers and their families; so many must work in the factories or go to war. Carl Morgan is a farmer who has protected his daughter, Anna. She didn’t have to work in the cotton fields and it was her mother’s dream to send her to college when she became of age. Anna’s life changes when she breaks a promise to her father and rides Napoleon, an untamed Arabian stallion who takes her on a wild ride to the Alexander plantation, a place forbidden to her because of a longstanding feud between the Morgan and Alexander families.
Anna’s adventure leads to the discovery of a valuable pendant, part of a stolen treasure that Andre Alexander brought to Oakwood Georgia in the mid-1800s, as well as an encounter with the dashing young Justin Alexander. Despite the feud between their families, Anna and Justin find themselves drawn to each other. They keep their love secret, and their union will take them down a path of danger and suspense.
Will the Alexander treasure and their families’ grievances rip the lovers apart? Or will they find forgiveness and love? The heart-rending tale is played out in this romantic and suspenseful debut novel of lust, greed, and murder.
