At thirty-nine, Terri Carter returns home to her small, southern hometown alone and heart-broken after her ten-year relationship has failed. She would never again be able to give her heart after this one ended in such devastation. She had always been the one to end the relationship when things didn't work out, but she never saw this one coming. In her mind, she thought this one would last forever. After weeks of painful soul searching, she begins her road to recovery by finding the inner strength to set her spirit free. As her emotional journey begins to unfold, she renews her enduring desire to have a child and finds an Obstetrician who can make her dream a reality. Dr. Aubrey Shannon, from Boston, moved her practice to this southern town a few years ago, where she hoped to reunite with a secret, lost love. Through endless months of soul searching, Terri finds more in her emotional journey with Aubrey than she bargained for...a relationship. But this journey will require her to once again open her heart and old wounds. Their separate journeys might just end up changing both their lives forever.

A Country Girl is the story of ANGELA, a country girl, and her sexual awakening from her first teenage love affair to the casual encounters of later years that threatened her innocence. It is about Angela, a woman with a vibrant sexuality and passionate joy for living. But it is also about all women and their search for sexual identity. It is happy and tragic, beautiful and deeply romantic, and frankly erotic. All women and their men will find within it a portion of their own lives and fantasies. Angela's first affair was full of romance, magic and mystery as she surrendered her virginity on a moonlit night in a fragrant hayfield. Not all the encounters that followed were: the James Dean look-alike who fulfilled her teenage fantasies, the college boys who shared her lust, the women who showed her a new understanding, her husband who introduced her to swinging, the strangers who turned her on to their own fantasies, and her midnight caller who seduced and enchanted her mind. But through it all Angela remains as always joyous, open, honest, and somehow innocent.

This is a story about the life of a country girl who unravels in cursive prose and poetry during the last decade of her life. As memories whirled in her mind, she sat complacently in her favorite chair, rocking and embroidering. Then she stopped rocking, put the embroidery down, and reached for a pencil and paper. Through her eyes, we see the treasures of forestry and changing seasons, colorful birds and animals, and culture and ideals. We feel again the lament and faith of our ancestors who come alive in the unceasing cycle of life.
