You Must Read, "Treadwell"
In all honesty, one of the great joys of being a new author, is being able to encourage and help to direct other authors. Dana Joy Wyzard is a friend of mine who is absolutely gifted with a fabulous sense of humor, keen observational skills and compassion. As a writer, she has an uncanny ability to grasp the reader in the very early stages of the work, and capture their attention.
Ms. Wyzard's first book, Treadwell was released recently, and is an absolute treat to anyone who reads it. Despite the fact that Dana and I became acquainted through our activities with regard to the preparedness community, the book is not about preparedness. It does however, concern the true fortitude of an older woman in difficult circumstances, and for this reason alone, would be very interesting to those in the preparedness community. It is however, a well written and spellbinding book for anyone.
This is a synopsis:
After living for sixty years in the cabin of her birth, Nelda Pike is as resilient and self-reliant as she needs to be. Like other residents in the backwoods town of Treadwell, she guards her anonymity with a fierce tenacity and a shotgun. When she discovers a terrified young woman stumbling beside the country road, Nelda goes against her better judgment and offers temporary sanctuary. As the only witness to her mother’s brutal murder, seventeen year old Laura is running for her life. Successfully tracking her to Nelda’s secluded cabin, the killers forcibly abduct Laura and disappear into the backwoods. Enraged, Nelda reaches out to her lifelong friend, Wosie Mae - a woman as irascible and indomitable as Nelda herself – for help. Together, two old women with shotguns, and a geriatric hound, are now on the murderer’s trail.
