This thinly veiled autobiographical account of one woman's austere life in the north Georgia mountains is classic narrative. A Circuit Rider's Wife draws on the years Corra Harris accompanied her husband in his work as a Methodist missionary. Set mostly in the fictional Redwine circuit, the novel tells of the challenges, hardships, and -- aside from the occasional homemade or homegrown donations -- mostly intangible rewards of itinerant country preaching. Through the eves of Elizabeth Thompson, the circuit rider's wife and narrator, Harris offers a witty but caring assessment of the sometimes fine differences between spiritual and merely religious folks, town and country society, backsliders and straight-and-narrow plodders, Methodists and Baptists, and heaven and hell.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Drawn from firsthand experience, A Circuit Rider's Wife is the fictionalized account of how Corra Harris sometimes followed, sometimes guided her husband through his missionary work in the north Georgia mountains. All along the hard-scrabble Redwine circuit the story vividly brings alive the strivings and strayings of an itinerant country preacher's restless flocks with warmth and humor.
