Lloyd J. Guillory

Author Lloyd J. Guilloryabout this book: So many interesting stories were born of the Great Depression and this story continues the tradition. The title character, Rainey, comes from a very poor and dysfunctional family; father nowhere to be found and generally lacking in any kind of guidance that would prepare her for the life ahead. I was born in 1925, experienced the Depression first hand during early childhood, and rendered some of those experiences and memories here in this novel.

The cover was inspired by Da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man" except the male was changed to a female; a metaphor for the development of her character. The title of the book, "Rainey: The Story Of A Woman" follows the naming scheme of most of my books -- I just call them what they are.

Readers interested in strong female characters should like this book -- she's definitely the strongest female character in any of the novels I've written and one that I think would be admired by most of those familiar with her story.
