From the author of the best-selling novel, REDEMPTION: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer comes MOLLY LEE.
Molly is about to set off on the adventure of a lifetime . . . of two lifetimes.
It’s 1861 and the Civil War has just started. Molly is an eighteen-year-old girl living on her family’s farm in Virginia when two deserters from the Southern Cause enter her life. One of them—a twenty-four-year-old Huck Finn—ends up saving her virtue, if not her life.
Molly is so enamored with Huck, she wants to run away with him. But Huck has other plans and is gone the next morning before she awakens. Thus starts a sequence of events that leads Molly into adventure after adventure; most of them not so nice.
We follow the travails of Molly Lee, starting when she is eighteen and ending when she is fifty-six. Even then Life has one more surprise in store for her.
"This is the swashbuckling adventure of a lifetime!!" -- Coffeeholic Bookworm
"I can't quite articulate what exactly it is, but there is something compelling about the story. It is fast-paced and dramatic. It is character-driven and has a Western dime store novel quality. By the end, I can say this is a good read." -- Jessica Seargeant/Novel Escapism
"In a character-driven story such as this, I really admire the way author Andrew Joyce lets us see how Molly changes, adapts, and grows over the decades . . . the pace and storyline kept me rooting for Molly. Plus Joyce's beautifully spare description and low-key emotion seem perfectly suited to the pragmatic Molly." -- Barb Taub of Tales from Null City
