An Oprah's Book Club pick and New York Times best-seller, this powerful novel is the starkly naturalistic story of a young woman's struggles in early 20th-century Appalachia. Richly crafted from the tiny details of everyday life, Gap Creek is a place that listeners will find unforgettable. Julie Harmon is a hard worker living a hard life. Only a teenager, she has already witnessed the deaths of her brother and father when she loses herself in the work of a new marriage. The trials she faces-from fires and floods to nearly unbearable hunger-gradually build into a wonderful examination of the ways the human spirit can triumph over adversity. Through rich, beautiful language and compelling storytelling, award-winning poet and novelist Robert Morgan recreates the quiet, earthy world of a century ago. Narrator Kate Forbes captures the soft cadence of a life made strong through the virtues of grace and simplicity.
