Plain Language by Barbara Wright

Book Description

Virginia Mendenhall, a Quaker from North Carolina, is thirty-three years old when she travels to the arid plains of eastern Colorado in the mid-1930s to marry Alfred Bowen, ten years her senior. They have met only twice and have come to love each other through letters. Now, on an isolated ranch in the Dust Bowl, they must adjust to the harsh ranching life and the dangers of an untamed landscape, as well as the differences between them. With an extended drought worsening the impact of the Depression in the West, neighbors turn against neighbors, and secrets from Alfred and Virginia's pasts come back to haunt them. But it is the arrival of Virginia's troubled brother on the ranch that sets off a chain of events with life-and-death consequences for them all. Plain Language is a beautifully told tale of a man and woman fighting against tremendous odds for their land -- and their love.

Childhood by Barbara Wright Childhood, Paperback (April 2013)

Written when the author was eighty-three years old, but dealing with only the first twelve years of her life, this title is constructed as a dialogue between the author and her memory. It interrogates her interlocutor in search of her own intentions, more precise accuracy, and, indeed, the truth.
