Parker McIntyre is late evacuating Galveston Island prior to a hurricane, despite advisement from local Texas authorities. When Parker becomes trapped in rising floodwaters, he is going to drown if help doesn’t arrive soon. Fearing death and questioning his faith, he thinks about the young son he’ll be leaving behind.
Alexandria Hanson is on her way off the island to escape the immediate storm threat, but she spots a person trapped in the water. Alex–as she’s called by friends and family– isn’t adventuresome by nature. Helping the man is going to require great personal risk, but she can’t leave him to die.
Strong mountain women, historical places, faith, and grief are themes explored in this account of a friendship that spans across decades.
Angels of the Appalachians is a fresh and endearing tale, filled with folksy phrases and amusing adages of the South. It’s the story of two women who meet in 1980, gray-haired Erma telling her life story to Annie, a young college student living in Charleston, West Virginia. The tale she tells is also of two women, and their adventures beginning in the coalfields of Red Ash, growing up near Thurmond, and eventually finding their way to Charleston in 1915.
