Two Voices from Louella Nelson
And a Common Thread: Love
Cora Lee In this gripping tale of survival in backwoods Depression-era Virginia, a homeless mother awakes after days of fever to find a tall stranger sharpening his knife by her campfire. Her husband, expected to return from looking for work, is a week late. In her struggle to reunite her family, a desperate Cora Lee protects herself with a mantle of bitterness and hate; but her child’s propensity for hope, the kindness of strangers, and her own capacity for love challenge Cora Lee to embrace the blessings as well as the tragic ironies of her life.
Falling for the Prosecutor On the eve of her marriage in Newport Bay and with the holidays just around the corner, Lizzie awakens to a real world nightmare in which the life of her dreams is falling apart. Learning to confront her worst fears, she discovers that redemption can arrive in the strangest of guises. Rising from the ashes takes courage and strength of character – can Lizzie overcome the tragedies that have dogged her and find the faith to create a new life again?
