Tilly Loves Johnny

by
Genres: Historical Fiction

Newlywed Tilly Miner turns a deaf ear to rumors and gossip her husband, Johnny, is running parties where “complimentary” hooch loosens lips as well as pocketbooks for those looking to gamble.  Some nights he crawls into their bed, smelling of sour rye mash; others, not even making it home until early morning.  But her loyalty remains unwavering.  And then, the unspeakable happens.

A few days before Christmas, Tilly discovers a bloody atrocity dumped on their kitchen table.  A warning from the Ku Klux Klan?  Johnny laughs it off as a joke.  But, when he goes missing one cold night in February, 1929, Tilly is convinced someone or something prevents his return.

Her undying faith in Johnny is tested by righteous attitudes from her best friend’s mother and a too-cruel mother-in-law, while a recalcitrant sheriff is convinced the man merely ran off.

“Tilly Loves Johnny” has been published by The Wild Rose Press and available on their site at TheWildRosePress.com.  It is also available through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and Kobo.com.  Be sure to check out “Juniper and Anise,” a precursor to “Tilly Loves Johnny,” both set during the Prohibition Era in the small town of Cedartown.  Both are stand-alone stories but isn’t it great fun to cross paths with characters from other books?
