Book summary

The Woodsman's Daughter was named one of the Ten Best Books of 2005 by the Louisville Courier-Journal. It was also a Finalist for the Kentucky Literary Award for Fiction.

Hailed as "vivid and unforgettable" by the New York Times Book Review, Gwyn Hyman Rubio's Icy Sparks dazzled readers-including Oprah-and became an acclaimed bestseller. Now Rubio offers another sweeping example of Southern storytelling at its finest with The Woodsman's Daughter. Set in post-Civil War southern Georgia, this is the saga of Dalia Miller, a headstrong beauty who is determined to rise above the sins of her father, a shrewd turpentine farmer haunted by a devastating secret. Brilliantly evoking the majestic estates and humble shantytowns of a South in transition and filled with vibrant characters, this epic page-turner with a spirited heroine at its heart confirms Rubio as "one of the South's new treasures" (Lexington Herald-Leader).
