Jilted a decade ago, Clara Anderson buried her broken heart and bruised pride under a cloak of rigid adherence to routine and vehement opposition to change. But oil has been discovered under the cotton fields and cow pastures of sleepy little Healdton, Oklahoma, and when lanky, soft-spoken roustabout Briar Nelson rents a room in Clara's boardinghouse, the Morning Glory, both experience an unwilling mutual attraction. Continued proximity results in Clara's gradual progression from adolescent denial to a more mature attitude of acceptance with a concomitant sweetening of her disposition. Brown's new Drifters & Dreamers series, set in 1917, introduces three cousins, the moonshine industry, and a new canvas for her folksy explorations of life and love at pivotal times in America.
