Jonis Agee recommends

A Sandhills Ballad (2009)
Ladette Randolph
"Randolph writes truthfully of the Nebraska Sandhills, a harsh land that exacts a brutal price for those who choose to love it. Having lived there, one never truly leaves, as Mary Rasmussen discovers, it etches its beautiful scar on body and soul."
The Last Bridge
The Last Bridge (2009)
Teri Coyne
"Teri Coyne has created a hypnotic portrait of an American family under attack from within, told with such unflinching honesty that you cannot take your eyes off the page. Not since Bastard Out of Carolina have we seen the breathtaking courage it takes to survive and triumph after paying the price of dark secrets corroding the heart of a family. Cat stings you with her caustic tongue, makes you laugh out loud with her wild humor, brings you to tears with the revelation of her trials, and finally lifts you to your feet as she fights her way free to love again. This is a tough, rewarding read you'll never forget."

If I Bring You Roses (2011)
Marisel Vera
"A deeply felt and satisfying tale that brings attention to the courage required to sustain hope, love, and passion as a stranger in a new land."
