Joan Donaldsonabout this book: When a passel of Englishmen invade Viney Walker's ridge in order to create an agrarian Utopia, she is vows to send them packing. But the talented teen discovers that she can sell her woven coverlets and pillows to the Inn that the settlers are building, and one of the men, Charlie has eyes of gentian blue and names the clouds floating over Viney's head. Torn between preserving her Appalachian culture and allowing Charlie to claim her heart, Viney yields to his love, but not until she has played a few tricks on the Englishmen. On Viney's Mountain is based on the story behind the 1880 settlement of Rugby, Tennessee and the life of Dicey Fletcher, a weaver whose art is housed in the Cincinnati Art Museum. Anyone interested in weaving, Appalachian history and a romance shaped by two cultures will cherish the historical romance.
• "I felt as though I had lived in those times and experienced the wonder of a virgin forest and felt the devastation of its demise as civilization began to encroach - I loved the spunk of Viney and how she grew to understand change and love." — D. G Amazon review
