Description
A New York Times Bestseller & Oprah's Book Club Pick



Young Julie Harmon works "hard as a man," they say, so hard that at times she's not sure she can stop. People depend on her to slaughter the hogs and nurse the dying. People are weak, and there is so much to do. At just seventeen she marries and moves down into the valley of Gap Creek, where perhaps life will be better.



But Julie and Hank's new life in the valley, in the last years of the nineteenth century, is more complicated than the couple ever imagined. Sometimes it's hard to tell what to fear most—the fires and floods or the flesh-and-blood grifters, drunks, and busybodies who insinuate themselves into their new life. To survive, they must find out whether love can keep chaos and madness at bay. Their struggles with nature, with work, with the changing century, and with the disappointments and triumphs of their union make Gap Creek a timeless story of a marriage.

display_description
An Oprah's Book Club pick and New York Times best-seller, this powerful novel is the starkly naturalistic story of a young woman's struggles in early 20th-century Appalachia. Richly crafted from the tiny details of everyday life, Gap Creek is a place that listeners will find unforgettable. Julie Harmon is a hard worker living a hard life. Only a teenager, she has already witnessed the deaths of her brother and father when she loses herself in the work of a new marriage. The trials she faces-from fires and floods to nearly unbearable hunger-gradually build into a wonderful examination of the ways the human spirit can triumph over adversity. Through rich, beautiful language and compelling storytelling, award-winning poet and novelist Robert Morgan recreates the quiet, earthy world of a century ago. Narrator Kate Forbes captures the soft cadence of a life made strong through the virtues of grace and simplicity.
