Joan Donaldsonabout this book: Winner of the 2010 Friends of American Writers Award, On Viney's Mountain stars Viney, a talented nineteenth century weaver who is determined to rid her Tennessee home of foreigners who have come to form a Utopian Settlement. But Viney hadn't planned on falling in love with one of the Englishman, Charlie, who admires her skills and knowledge of the natural world. Tension abounds as Viney and Charlie struggle with the conflicts of cultures, the demands of farming, and as they escape from the burning Tabard Inn. On Viney's Mountain is based on the real life drama of Historic Rugby, Tennessee and the character of Dicey Fletcher. This historical romance also was a finalist for the 2011 Bronte Prize for Romantic Literature and was selected to represent the state of Tennessee at the 2010 National Book Festival.
• "There aren't enough stars. This was truly a TEN STAR book. Viney is refreshing, a safe read for any age. It doesn't matter what type of book you typically read. Joan has a way of weaving the story line and drawing you in." — the coloring addict on Amazon
