Growing up in Southern Appalachia was never easy. Poverty challenged all who would dare call it their home. Some migrated to urban opportunities born by the 1960s US culture revolution.
Retiring Atlanta police officer Lee Ellen Cornwell chose to return to her mountain roots. Stressed from big city insanity, she wishes now to forget the “middle years”, bury the past, and enjoy her golden years in the rural place of her youth. Fate would not allow. Old secrets surface and woes return.
Who would want to kill a lady with a legacy of Protect and Serve? A host of different enemies with a motive want her dead. The Lies We Bury is not a cozy, sentimental, romance novel. Physical, mental, and spiritual tragedy besieges the brave ones. Like author, Thomas Wolfe, she still dares to go home again to her mountains.
