Product Description

A tender, love inspired historical novel by best selling authors Jennifer Youngblood and Sandra Poole

A man she couldn't forget ... a second chance to prove that love never fails ...

Cultured, graceful, feisty Shelby Collins is the epitome of a southern lady. She tries to prove her competence by looking after her siblings while her mother is away caring for an ailing relative. Shelby’s secure world is turned upside down when her father, in a drunken rage, tries to rape her. Fearing others will learn of his treachery, he kidnaps her, takes her to a reform school, and abandons her. In utter despair, Shelby is sure that her life is over—but sometimes blessings come in the most unexpected ways.

When a chance meeting brings her face to face with the ruggedly handsome, Harlan Rhodes, Shelby is unprepared for the feelings that stir within her. Hearts collide, and a love in bloom becomes a lasting love that will span time and space. Through a series of unfortunate events, Shelby and Harlan are separated, forcing them to lead separate lives of loneliness and frustration.

Years later, when their lives converge, old feelings rekindle, and they must decide if they will risk all to finally be together.

Inspired by a true story, this love inspired historical novel is set against the rich tapestry of the South during the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. It’s a story of love, betrayal, and the indomitable human spirit in the face of adversity. It’s about a young girl, growing up, who realizes that life is full of second chances, and that it’s never too late to learn how to live.

“A compelling story of family loyalty, love, loss, and strength, as warm and fertile as the rich red clay of a Georgia field. The inspiring, hardscrabble lives of Depression-era southerners make for a vivid story of love and forgiveness.”
--Deborah Smith, New York Times bestselling author of A Place to Call Home

“Strongly recommended and superbly crafted reading.”
--Midwest Book Review

“With a combination of heartbreak, romance, and triumph, Livin’ in High Cotton is a page-turning pleasure.”
--LDS Living Magazine

“You’ve got to read this book. I loved it. You won’t be able to put it down. It evoked so many emotions, and it was easy reading. I felt like I was actually there. It’s one of those books you want to pick up and read a second time.”
--Rilly Winkle, Alabama TV and radio personality

I found myself enveloped in the life of Shelby as she navigated a painful life. By no fault of her own, she was given trial, confusion and pain...but love prevailed.

HASH(0x978b3f60) out of 5 stars A lovely and well written story! Nov. 29 2014

This is such a beautiful and moving story. I REALLY loved it. The book is well written and the characters are very well developed. You truly feel like you know them. I got sucked in to this book and did not want it to end. I loved escaping 2014 and emerging myself into the southern world of the 1930's.

I loved every word of it, and I would love to read more by these authors.
I enjoyed the fact that this book covered several years, and continued the story instead of being hurried to the end.
You get to know the characters as they stumble their way though life, as we all do.
They make mistakes and they cry just as all humans do.
Keep writing, and it would be good to see what the next generation does.

Nice clean read, not cobbled up with a bunch of stuff that doesn't add to the experience. I like these author's plan to read more. Sure had a snapshot into what life was like back then.
