The Seasons of Doubt by Jeannie Burt. In the winter of 1873, Mary Harrington must save herself and her son after her husband abandons them in a sod house on the Nebraska prairie.
As you can tell just from this short teaser, Burt's writing crackles and she knows how to bustle the story right along.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
