Spanning the 20th century, it is deep in character, atmosphere and drama.    “The Light of Paris” by Eleanor Brown is about  which a woman in a troubled marriage who discovers the journals her grandmother kept while a young woman in Jazz-Age.   These long-buried stories give her the motivation to navigate the world on her own terms. “Prayers the Devil Answers” by Sharyn McCrumb traces the fate of an Appalachian couple that moves to town in search of work during the depression. The writing is “straight-forward, unadorned, and powerful.”
