From the Publisher
Young Julie Harmon works "hard as a man," they say, so hard that at
times she's not sure she can stop. People depend on her to
slaughter the hogs and nurse the dying. People are weak, and there
is so much to do. At just seventeen she marries and moves down into
the valley of Gap Creek, where perhaps life will be better.
But Julie and Hank's new life in the valley, in the last years of
the nineteenth century, is more complicated than the couple ever
imagined. Sometimes it's hard to tell what to fear most-the fires
and floods or the flesh-and-blood grifters, drunks, and busybodies
who insinuate themselves into their new life. To survive, they must
find out whether love can keep chaos and madness at bay. Their
struggles with nature, with work, with the changing century, and
with the disappointments and triumphs of their union make Gap
Creek a timeless story of a marriage.
