Ep23 – A Twist of Tobacco – Rita Ownby Holcomb
In this episode, I speak with Rita Ownby Holcomb. She will be reading from her American Civil War historical fiction book entitled, A Twist of Tobacco.
A family is like A Twist of Tobacco, layered, folded and twisted until each leaf becomes inseparable. Ten-year-old Lizzie proudly watches her brothers; uncles and close neighbors ride off to war in their butternut uniforms not realizing that she will soon be responsible for her five younger siblings. Based on family stories and traditions and backed by years of research, this historical novel immerses you in the war torn hills of Middle Tennessee, the blood bath that was Chickamauga and the hell hole of Rock Island Prison. Follow the Civil War lives of the eleven Ownby children during The Civil War and watch for subsequent books in the series.
