Rachel: A Satilla County Novel

Bootleg Whiskey, Women’s Rights, and Changing Times

With best friend Eve at her side, aspiring young journalist Rachel Mellon comes “home” to Satilla County to write the lives of southern women.  She collides head-on with the Circle of Brothers, a gang of good old boys who control the illegal liquor business.  They claim to stand for God, country, and family values, but Rachel sees them for the murderous crime syndicate they are, and she takes them on.  Armed with words and right,  can she triumph or even survive in this classic battle of good versus evil?  Set between the demise of the old Klan and the birth of the new in the early twentieth-century South, this is a story about bootleg whiskey, women’s rights, and changing times. It is also a story about the possibility of love and the miracle of redemption.
