Gwyn Hyman Rubio's first novel, Icy Sparks , was hailed as 'vivid and unforgettable' ( The New York Times Book Review ), 'a combination of fire and ice that will take your breath away' ( Atlanta Journal-Constitution ). Now, Rubio has done it again with The Woodsman's Daughter , a richly absorbing tale of the gothic South that, like Icy Sparks , has another unforgettable heroine at its heart. Dalia is the brassy and beautiful eldest daughter of Monroe Miller, a shrewd turpentine farmer in 1800s southern Georgia haunted by a devastating secret. A resilient and resourceful young woman, Dalia strives to create a better life for herself and will stop at nothing to protect her family, but the sins of the father are never far behind. In this spellbinding, page-turning epic, Rubio brings the swaying pines, humble shantytowns, and insular bustle of small-town living vibrantly to life. The Woodsman's Daughter is certain to cement Rubio's reputation as a major southern voice in American fiction.
