Buried Seeds: a novel
2020 FAPA President’s Award-Winner Adult Fiction – General (Gold)
Two women, a century apart, but both have had enough. 2017: Angie Fisher promises to take over her best friend’s duties as president of the West Virginia teacher’s union, but her unemployed husband fears this will cost him a job with the FBI. 1903: Angie’s great-great-grandmother Rosella endures devastating loss, life-threatening illness, arrest, and the destructive force of an earthquake. Yet nothing derails her quest to control her own destiny and win the right for all women to vote. Through pages of a family scrapbook, Rosella’s courage speaks to Angie. If she doesn’t advocate for her students, hearing-impaired grandbaby, and colleagues, who will? But will she lose the man she loves by taking a stand? At some point, silence becomes betrayal.
