A grandmother who only ever wanted to protect her two little girls. A mother who did the unthinkable years before. A father lost in his memories of the Korean War, and a daughter caught in the middle of it all. Georgia. Thanksgiving week. 1962.

USA Today bestselling author Ann Garvin had this to say about the novel: “A beautifully written, deeply felt story of the importance of listening to even the smallest voices amongst us. You’ll want to reach into the pages to give Macey May a hug and to whisper that all will be fine in the end. Kim Catron is a new author to watch, and Threshing of Straw is a story that will not disappoint.”

Don’t miss this incredible story that everyone will soon be talking about!
