Stellar Review of Nina Owen's Throwing It All Away

Finished Throwing It All Away in one day. Nina’s emotionally raw writing sucked me right in and I didn’t put the book down until completed. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about everything she, Sam, her husband, and daughters went through. Nina brings the reader next to her leading up to and when her world exploded. I think it takes real bravery and courage to be so very honest in the midst of tragedy. I just ordered 10 additional copies I feel compelled to share, as it is so rare to get a glimpse into the mind of someone struggling like Sam was, especially after the fact, combined with Nina’s brutal honesty creates a powerful impact all middle and high school students and their parents MUST read.

ARC (E-version only) Readers needed for Tallapoosa
A remarkable young couple evolves amid the chaos of the early civil rights movement and the Vietnam Era. Against the strong objections of her wealthy parents, twenty-two-year-old Sarah Wentworth leaves Boston for a new home among black farming families in the Deep South. Smitten from the beginning, Emmett, lacking formal schooling but filled with natural wisdom, risks his reputation to support Sarah’s work with the Sharecroppers Union. The resilient lovers combat the rampage of cross burnings and vigilantes to help defend the rights of the local black workers and to build their own family. An inspiring historical novel, Tallapoosa portrays powerful personal journeys of triumphs and tragedies that offer keen insight into the battles still being fought today.

The New Southern Fugitives
Contagion and Collectivism: Volume 3, Issue 24

“Love can cauterize wounds and carve new ones. It is a bane, a salve, a mystery, and an all-consuming entity that we sometimes seek to stare down and shrink from because we cannot stand to see what is reflected back at us. This issue portrays love’s complicated facets, especially its passion, pain, and ambiguity.”

-D. W. McKinney, Issue 24 curator and TNSF Web Resident
