THE SHINING BADGE
by Gilbert Morris

Genre: Inspirational, Historical Fiction

RT Rating

The stock market crash of 1929
forces the once wealthy Winslows to live
on the rundown family farm in northern Georgia. The farm, which once belonged to Lewis Winslow's deceased first wife, now houses new wife Missouri Ann and the younger children of his first marriage.

Lewis' daughter, Jenny, despises the attentions of crude deputy Max Conroy, who is unfair to everyone, especially people of color, women and those in opposition to the county's illegal moonshine business. When Jenny sees a cruel act perpetrated
by the deputy, she runs for sheriff against Conroy. But folks are surly with the Depression upon them and aren't too keen on having a woman tell them what to do.

Morris continues the House of Winslow series with another compelling story
featuring a lively plot and intriguing
characters. (Mar., 320 pp., $12.99)
