Overview

It's 1928 ... the Great Depression lurks just around the corner. Divorcing a cheating husband means disgracing her family, but Claire Devoe can't take it anymore. Forced to provide for herself, she travels the Midwest with a sales crew. Can she trust the God who didn't save her first marriage to lead her through the maze of new love and overwhelming expectations? The long twilight of the Great Depression-with its debt, disgrace, drought, and despair-becomes the crucible that remakes her life. Daughter of the Cimarron is the fictionalized tale of the author's mother as she went from ragtime to breadlines, from the silent cities and melancholy towns to a dugout overlooking the Cimarron Canyon, from brokenness to strength. "Readers who find themselves wrestling for control over what needs to be left in God's hands will see themselves in Claire." ROMANTIC TIMES "As a consummate crafter of words and characters, Sam Hall weaves an engaging story of one woman's search for herself and her God." BILL MYERS, Author of Eli "Bravo to author Sam Hall on his debut novel, Daughter of the Cimarron! His heroine is a character you'll never forget. Troubled, but always determined, she and the love of her life struggle through the Depression and the Dust Bowl in a twister of a story. Sam doesn't shy away from the tough issues, both in life and love, and his hard work has paid off in a memorable tale of what really matters." LESLIE GOULD, #1 Best-Selling and Christy Award-Winning Author "Sam Hall writes the kind of narrative I love most, the search for self amidst the search for faith." GINA OCHSNER, Author of The Necessary Grace to Fall (Winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award) and People I Wanted to Be (Winner of the Oregon Book Award) "Daughter of the Cimarron grips the reader's heart while at the same time illuminating the historical period in which the story is set. Author Samuel Hall hits all the right notes in this compelling debut novel. Recommended!" ANN SHOREY, Author of the At Home in Beldon Grove and Sisters at Heart Series "Sam Hall's debut novel, Daughter of the Cimarron, kept me reading when I should have been doing other things. A historical novel based on real life, its readers are plunged into Claire's struggle to live down a divorce and find a way to earn a living in 1928, at the beginning of the Great Depression. How do we find faith after we've been disillusioned? Crawl under the covers if you plan to read this book before bedtime, because you won't want to put it down." MARION DUCKWORTH, Author of 16 Books, including Naked on God's Doorstep and The Greening of Mrs. Duckworth
