Don Wooldridgeabout this book: As the economy brings our country more angst, one must wonder about the increase of bartering and if, in our attempt for survival, what would happen if small town America was suddenly flooded with IRS Agents who came to destroy the very fiber of that grasping for existence?
The Secrets of Clayton County is being written as a Trilogy, in part to support the author's experience of bartering as a way of life rather than a deliberate avoidance in paying taxes. The practice, extending over more than two decades, is the foundation of this rather intriguing saga of Sarah Hunter who begins with her first position with the IRS office in Chicago – a job that brings her to Clayton County, Iowa. Sarah is tasked to expose and break up what the IRS deems revenue generation and gross tax avoidance. What Sarah finds instead are many secrets in Clayton County… secrets which ultimately change her life in unforeseen ways; realizing as much as things change, they remain the same.
New Beginnings: Book 2 of the Trilogy focuses on Sarah's return to Clayton County, and ultimately becoming a thread in the fiber of a culture of community support. Experiencing myriad continued secrets throughout her years in this sleepy little rural community, Sarah comes to understand there is no easy way to be a part of a community and not participate in its underlying culture.
The third and final book in the Trilogy, The Homecoming, takes readers into Sarah's life as a key community member, wife of a local hero, and mother of two children who have developed into personalities as strong and independent as Sarah. Although the fabric of community and culture remains strong in the final book, and the issue of bartering is revisited again and again, it is the sense of relationships within Sarah's immediate family that keeps readers turning pages.
