Publisher's Summary

In the bloodiest years of our nation's history, a young mother was left alone to endure the ravages of the Civil War and a typhoid epidemic that threatened the lives of everyone left behind.
Okatibbee Creek is based on the true story of Mary Ann Rodgers, who survived the collapse of the Confederate dollar, food shortages, and the deaths of countless family members to war and disease. As she searched for a way to feed her children and her orphaned nieces and nephews, Sherman's Union army marched through Mississippi on their way to destroy Meridian, and Mary Ann found the distant war literally on her doorstep.
Help arrived just in the nick of time in the form of an unexpected champion, and Mary Ann emerged on the other side a heroic woman with an amazing story. Okatibbee Creek is an audiobook of historical fiction that brings the Deep South vividly to life and will have you cheering and crying through a real-life story of loss, love and survival.

Excellent read, Outgunned Creek

I tired a little of the genealogy lesson, who married whom, whose child was of what parents - hard to keep everyone straight. HOWEVER, persevere! The author expertly weaves historical events with cherished, charismatic characters. Well worth the read. The performance absolutely brings the story to life!
