Coming May 2018:

The Seasons of Doubt

 

In the frigid Nebraska winter of 1873, Mary Harrington and her five-year-old son are starving. Three months before, her husband left their sod house and has not returned. Mary has lost hope she will ever see him again. Her choices are bleak: continue to wait and die of hunger, or pack their few things and leave. Desperate and cold, they flee the homestead in a what likely may be a futile search for help.

Written in the the rich days of settling America and in the spirit of Willa Cather, The Seasons of Doubt portrays the courage of a mother in severe and paralyzing times left to survive and to find a way to raise her child alone.

 

 

When Patty Went Away

What could cause a quiet farmer to rise above all he loves? For Jack McIntyre, it is the day troubled fifteen-year-old Patty Pugh disappears and everyone bids her good riddance.

That same awful year, a hailstorm wipes out Jack’s entire crop. The bank threatens to foreclose.

As much as his own future worries him, Jack cannot put Patty out of his mind. What happened to her? Is she all right? Is she hurt? Finding out what happened rests on him alone.

While he scrambles to keep his ranch and family afloat, he quietly begins a search to find the girl. His quest leads him on a strange journey to the underbelly of a world and life he could never have imagined.

 

Reviews:

A remarkably moving novel, heartbreaking and hopeful; there are scenes of great power; but what strikes me most about this novel is that it is true, and real.” Molly Gloss, author of “The Jump-Off Creek” and “The Hearts of Horses”


Jeannie Burt’s important debut signals that another powerful voice has joined the chorus of outstanding women writing about the West.”

Craig Lesley, author of “The Sky Fisherman” and “Winterkill”


A deftly written novel showcasing the quiet struggle of a farmer and his family within the framework of a deftly written mystery. A minor literary masterpiece, author Jeannie Burt is a remarkably gifted writer and When Patty Went Away is highly recommended for personal summer fun reading lists.” —The Midwest Book Review


This is a very fine book which I’m happy to recommend. Jeannie Burt is an intelligent and generous writer who draws out the complexity of her characters rather than casting them as heroes and villains. Her story hews very close to real life while providing a compelling narrative that draws the reader along to a dramatic conclusion.” —Donald Lystra, author of “Season of Water and Ice”, winner of the Midwest Book Award for fiction


WHEN PATTY WENT AWAY is, quite simply, an extraordinary achievement. Jeannie Burt is an author to watch. Highly recommended.” —Tim Bazzett, Author of “The Book Lover”
