Historical Fiction and More
EMZ-Piney Publishing offers three novels set in early Arkansas Territory. His Promise True tells how a young couple makes the journey as pioneers from Tennessee, and A Permanent Home follows the same couple as they struggle to create a home in Arkansas Territory. The latest release Our Present Suffering focuses on Mary Avery and her decision (a bit radical in 1830) to pursue a divorce from the man who abandoned her.
“This tale [Our Present Suffering] set in early Arkansas history is a compelling drama of a woman alone and disenfranchised during that time when women had very few rights. It has the ring of authenticity as the author brings the carefully researched story to life with vivid descriptions of that time and place. You will be glad to have this story in your library.” – Gary R
