    Summary

    We've visited my mythical Plain County, Alabama, and its county seat, Sally, once in 1960, once in 1983, and four times in the present. Please accept my invitation to 1874. Let's visit the Civil War-widowed Carol Aird and her daughter's governess, Therese Belivet, at Miss Carol's plantation, Belle Aird. How might they fare in their ill-named era, Reconstruction?

    Please note that despite a 19th Century southern woman's marital status, she would affectionately, yet still respectfully, be addressed Miss Carol, Miss Therese, or Miss Abby by friends, neighbors, or servants.

    Also, this story takes place in a highly racist time and culture; the N-word flowed from most caucasian lips frequently without hesitation or guilt. I have a son-in-law and a granddaughter of color. I refuse to type said word; I'll work around it. Carol will refer to it vaguely in one demonstrative instance.

    This will be an excruciatingly slow burn. It is a difficult write, and I will take a lot of time with each chapter. Thanks in advance to those willing to linger patiently with me in the fields, streams, forests, and structures of Belle Aird.

    Summary

    “I don’t suppose you’d like to spend some time with me Sunday night,” Mrs. Aird dipped her chin, a lock of blonde hair falling out of place. “Would you?”

    “Yes,” Therese answered immediately, a rush of breath in the midst of this seduction. “Yes, I would.”

    Part Two coming in 2023.

    Summary

    For over a century, two northern California farming families, the Airds and Belivets, have been at odds. They raised various crops over the decades, but both clans began to concentrate on growing and harvesting walnuts in the 1920s. Deadly gun violence haunted this feud in the 19th Century. Later, the weapons became words and societal backstabbing.

    Therese Belivet returns to the groves in 1967 to teach at the local high school. Low and behold, Carol Aird's daughter, Rindy, is in Therese's Honors English class. Will it be two cats in a burlap sack or a pair of lovelorn souls discovering romance among the Walnut groves?

    Summary

    I’d like to think of this as a throwback to Patricia Highsmith’s noir genre. What if two ordinary people, Therese Belivet and Carol Aird, found themselves embroiled in events spinning rapidly out of control? Who is to be trusted? What is to be believed? Can one of them actually trust her lover’s memories of the events?
