The Woodsman's Daughter

(2005)
A novel by

 
 
Gwyn Hyman Rubio's first novel, Icy Sparks, was hailed as 'vivid and unforgettable' (The New York Times Book Review), 'a combination of fire and ice that will take your breath away' (Atlanta Journal-Constitution). Now, Rubio has done it again with The Woodsman's Daughter, a richly absorbing tale of the gothic South that, like Icy Sparks, has another unforgettable heroine at its heart.

Dalia is the brassy and beautiful eldest daughter of Monroe Miller, a shrewd turpentine farmer in 1800s southern Georgia haunted by a devastating secret. A resilient and resourceful young woman, Dalia strives to create a better life for herself and will stop at nothing to protect her family, but the sins of the father are never far behind.

In this spellbinding, page-turning epic, Rubio brings the swaying pines, humble shantytowns, and insular bustle of small-town living vibrantly to life. The Woodsman's Daughter is certain to cement Rubio's reputation as a major southern voice in American fiction.
