Ruth Kyserabout this book: "Marcie's Mountains" takes place in the mountains of East Tennessee--in the Smoky Mountain area and tells the story of Marcie Starr.
When Marcie is given a magazine assignment to collect information and write an article about McRae's Recycled Logs and Materials—a business specializing in saving old log cabins—she is ecstatic. Then she finds out the business is located in the mountains of East Tennessee, not far from her hometown—a place Marcie vowed she'd left for good when she went to college. A place filled with bad memories, mostly revolving around her alcoholic mother.
Then she meets Dean McRae and the guys who work for him. Instantly, Marcie is drawn back toward the life she'd left behind so many years before. And even though she keeps telling herself the relationship will go nowhere, Marcie is also inexplicably attracted to Dean—a man completely different from any she's ever known before.
Will Marcie be able to reconcile with her mother and forgive her for the past—or has she waited too late? And what about Marcie's relationship with God—also broken the same time she left the mountains? And then there's Dean McRae—the tall, good-looking, honest man of the mountains who draws Marcie in with her first glimpse of him. Does he fit in with God's plans for Marcie's future, or will she have to also leave him behind to chase her dreams?
Marcie's Mountains is a Christian Romance—a heartfelt story filled with people you will come to know and love.
I love the eastern part of Tennessee, and this is the second book I've written where I've used the mountains of that area as a setting. There's something majestic and almost magical about those sacred hills that draws me into sharing about them.
Log cabins and their building has long intrigued me. Many years ago, my parents and I visited family friends in Pennsylvania. Their house had a log cabin attached—the original dwelling of the family. They had turned it into a family room, but the room was so cozy and unique—I fell in love with the structure right away. I did a great deal of research when it came time to write the book, and I especially found interesting all the different ways the pioneers built their cabins. Each builder used their own knowledge of building to make their log cabin uniquely theirs.
The cover was one that spoke to me the first time I saw it as it incorporated not only the view of the mountains, but also the artist's palette. Because art is Marcie's passion, it seemed only right that it also be a significant part of the cover art.
I hope my readers enjoy the story of Marcie and Dean as much as I enjoyed writing it.
