Description

"She'd been born and raised on her Fayette County mountain in West 'by God' Virginia, and in all her thirty-three years had never stepped foot outside the state's borders. Her family and that mountain had overshadowed her entire unremarkable life. It wasn't that she didn't love both, or, for that matter, every inch of her farm in Gimlet Hollow. She did, deeply. But as she stood, letter in hand, she allowed herself to dream . . ."


The Other Morgans is a riveting novel about home, history, race, ancestry, and love. Yearning for a better life for herself and her daughter, AJ is suddenly challenged to make a life-altering decision by the terms of an unexpected inheritance. Once she tentatively accepts the conditions of that inheritance, she encounters stories of her family's history that both attract and repel her. As Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz says, "There's no place like home." But what constitutes home? Where you're born, or where your ancestors came from? It's a question AJ must answer.


Poverty or pipe dream? West Virginia or Virginia? AJ has one year to decide.
