FIELDS OF GOLD
Genre: Historical Romance, Historical Fiction
Bostwick entertains with her first novel, which explores one woman's life on an Oklahoma farm. Eva Glennon is a teenager on the brink of womanhood in rural Dillon, Oklahoma, in the 1920s, when she meets Charles Lindbergh.
Lindbergh lands his plane on Eva's family's farm, and the two experience an instant emotional and physical connection. But their brief affair is not without consequences, though Charles goes on to become a great aviator, and Eva continues to live her simple farm life.
Thanks to her extensive historical knowledge of Lindbergh, Bostwick has successfully blended fact with the fiction of his love affair with Eva, a beautiful woman marred only by a crippled leg. The reader fully experiences Eva's life as she copes with the pain of heartbreak and unconditional love. Captivating and hauntingly beautiful, this debut is a true gem. (Sep., 320 pp., $14.00)
