Broken: A Shenandoah Neighbors Story

Broken can be read at any time, but preferably after you have read The Man from Shenandoah, and possibly Spinster’s Folly, just so you know who the characters are. Here’s the description:

Rida Owen didn’t know married life on the Colorado frontier could be so difficult. Nothing in her Catholic upbringing prepared her for long, lonely nights when her husband, Bert, goes drinking. And womanizing. And then comes home to beat her.

Her mother-in-law thinks she’s stuck up when she doesn’t participate in the homestead wash day. Rida only wants to hide her bruises and preserve her marriage.

Then a neighbor from her past stops to say hello and reveals a secret of his own.

A Shenandoah Neighbors story that illuminates a dark corner of the Owen Family universe.

No one in Shenandoah County would say Rod Owen lacked vigor.

The evidence is clear, with six young’uns running around the farm and his wife Julia about to call in the midwife again.

A pie crust and a small boy with a sack of dead squirrels can be vexing
impediments when such a man wants a little kissin’ in the kitchen.

The Apple Pie Prize is a short story packed with insights into early times at the Owen Family farm.

Author Marsha Ward writes authentic historical fiction set in 19th Century America, and contemporary romance. She was born in the sleepy little town of Phoenix, Arizona, in a simpler time.

Now she makes her home in a forest in the mountains of Arizona. She loves to hear from her readers.
