The Woodsman's DaughterBook - 2005
Gwyn Hyman Rubios 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 Woodsmans 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 Woodsmans Daughteris certain to cement Rubios reputation as a major southern voice in American fiction.
