Erma’s Attic is a heartfelt and humorous tale, filled with historical facts, folksy phrases and amusing adages of the Southern United States.
When Annie, a young doctoral student living in Charleston, West Virginia, takes the advice of an elderly friend and spends a few nights at a farmhouse up Black Hollow Road, she discovers a journal in the attic.
The aged diary, she soon realizes, was written by her dear friend, Erma, who had recently passed on over to the sweet by and by. Her friend’s memories transport her on an adventure that defines and embraces involvement in the women’s suffrage movement, chatting with Mary “Mother” Jones, and standing vigil outside collapsed coal mines in the first half of the twentieth century.
Tales from the past, and from the present when the journal is uncovered, are woven together to ultimately offer readers a compelling picture of life in the West Virginia Appalachians.
Erma’s Attic (Angels of the Appalachians Book 2) renews the stories of Annie, Will, Erma, Ida, and of course, Hank. If you enjoyed Angels of the Appalachians, you are invited to explore this account of a friendship that spans across decades. If you haven’t read the first book, don’t fret, because you will still find yourself wishing to call on the fine folks of the Appalachian Mountains.
It’s time to kick off your shoes, relax for a spell, and meet some of the angels who have made West Virginia so gloriously wild and wonderful.
This delightful fictional novella is available on Kindle and in Paperback.
