Julie by Catherine Marshall
It's a beautiful cover, isn't it? This is the only fiction release, other than Christy, that Catherine Marshall released. It is now available in reprint from Gilead's Evergreen Farm imprint.
Julie Wallace has always wanted to write. Trying to escape the Great Depression, Julie’s father buys the Alderton Sentinel, a small-town newspaper in flood-prone Alderton, Pennsylvania, and moves his family there. As flash floods ominously increase, Julie’s investigative reporting uncovers secrets that could endanger the entire community.
