A page-turner of historical fiction! Strother is a class act whose prose does not disappoint. He has mastered the art of rooting the reader in the time period and then supported that with a great coming of age tale. --David Burnsworth, Author of the Brack Pelton Mystery Series
One part Southern Gothic, one part crime novel, one part coming-of-age story, Burning Time is a compelling read I couldn t put down. It s beautifully delivered in Strother s clear, concise prose and authentic Southern voice. --Susan M. Boyer, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of the Liz Talbot Mystery Series

In Burning Time, we meet Louise, at age 8, on the morning of her brother Henry's birth. Affected by the overheard pain of her mother's labor, she vows to never have a child and promises her tiny brother that she will protect him forever. The story follows Louise through her youth and early adulthood, always finding ways to protect her brother and even her mother. Her family is loving, except for an abusive father, so once he's out of the picture, life seems perfect. And it is until tragedy strikes her grandparents.
