It is May 1932 and life in the timbered rise and fall of Western Arkansas has just gotten harder for sixteen-year-old Sooze Williams. With debt mounting and both friends and family fleeing, Sooze is determined to “do the right thing.” She promises her heart to a well-to-do man believing true love is just another loss along the way.

But when her uncle is murdered and family is accused of the crime, Sooze vows not to be beaten. Is salvation within her grasp by relying solely on truth, or is it in the security of her intended’s money? Sooze must decide before it’s too late.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Karen (K.S.) Jones was born and raised in California’s San Joaquin Valley — the destination of thousands of families fleeing the Dust Bowl during America’s Great Depression — where her favorite pastime was reading. She especially loved The Grapes of Wrath, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Education of Little Tree, plus all the Jack London novels. So who could expect her debut novel, Shadow of the Hawk, to sound any differently than it does? She now lives in the beautiful Texas Hill Country with her husband, Richard, and their two dogs, Libby Loo and Red Bleu.
