In 1960, a tragic death in the family calls young Sarah Browning back from college to her Appalachian homestead. Unable to return to school and finish her degree, she finds herself facing a future that isn’t what she’d planned. Lost and grieving, she wanders onto her reclusive neighbor’s property where she stumbles across the all-too-attractive Owen Campbell, a man hiding secrets she’d only ever thought were legend.
Owen Campbell was raised on the folklore of Eastern Kentucky, tales of men and women with magical abilities from shape-shifting to healing powers. Rejected by those he loves because of his own abilities, he isolates himself from the world. When he meets Sarah, he’s faced with the tough decision of whether to let her in or stay hidden away to keep his heart safe.
Please note – this book is NOT a typical paranormal romance. No rage-beast shifters or alpha dogs here. It is, however, at its heart a romance set in the early 1960s, with a few intimate scenes between the hero and heroine as well as adult situations dealing with tragedy.
“Firefly Hollow” is the first book in the Firefly Hollow series, which are Women’s Fiction Romances set in Appalachia, featuring elements of traditional Appalachian folklore with a paranormal bent.
Five Star Verified Amazon Reviews:
“I rarely give 5 star reviews but I really enjoyed this book and feel it deserves 5. The characters are true to life. believable and accurate for the time period of the story. The story line grabbed my interest from the very beginning and held it to the end. I read a great deal and have found many books that I have enjoyed – this one was just a little over the top of those and I highly recommend it to those who like clean, interest grabbing stories with a little romance and a little paranormal twist.”
“I love reading about the Appalachian Mountains. Especially if it involves Kentucky. I grew up in and around London and Somerset. It is a beautiful area. Having read about shifters before. I was really drawn to Firefly Hollow. The author gives us some good useful information to help understand. As to how shifting actually works. There are some strange and mysterious things that happen in mountains. However that is only a small part of the story. There is so much more. It is about the culture of mountain people. About a young woman struggling in the beginning of a cultural change in the early sixties. How violence can destroy families and how love can grow in the middle of the worst of times. I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I have.”
