The Owen Family
Additional standalone works in the Owen Family Universe. Most recently published first:
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.
But 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.
A short story packed with insights into early times at the Owen Family farm in Virginia.
(Most enjoyable after reading That Tender Light.)
Young Julianna Owen didn’t think flirting with Parley Morgan at the barn raising would lead him to put his hands where they ought not to be. But worse yet, her sister discovers them and Parley abandons her, running off into the woods.
Julianna’s strict father has found where she is hiding, and her world on the Colorado frontier is crashing down around her ears. She thought love and romance was only about going on picnics and holding hands, not rough kisses and hurtful pawing.
Now the consequences of her actions might be beyond what she can bear.
In the 1860s Owen Family universe, Scandalous shines a light on teen hormones run amok during a trying time in the family’s story, as it ties up a loose thread from the novel, Spinster’s Folly.
This edition contains bonus material at the end, an excerpt from the Shenandoah Neighbors story, Bloodied Leather.
