The passion of Dellie O'Barr
Everybody in McDade has always thought of Dellie O'Barr as "the good little sister"--until she falls urgently in love with Populist rabble-rouser Andrew Ashland. For his love, Dellie tosses aside her own status--a privileged life and perfect reputation--burns down a local store that denies Populists credit and leaves her rich husband to chase after her lover when he disappears from town. Dellie becomes a martyr and model to the national suffragist movement. Through it all, her husband sticks by her. As much about married love as forbidden love, THE PASSION OF DELLIE O'BARR is the story of a singular woman's life and of the lives of the two men she chooses as lovers. "Captivating."--Booklist; "Crisp prose, absorbing historical detail and appealing characters."--Publishers Weekly; "Cindy Bonner is a national treasure . . . What's so remarkable about Bonner's writing is that not only can she spin a mesmerizing yarn, but she can also weave in the small details of a century ago in a way that makes the era seem human and real."--The Virginian-Pilot.
