Book: The Patriot and the Plough

Author: Arizona author, Joy Pennock Gage

About the Book

He jerked his head upward and stared through the foliage. The sun fell upon his face but he shivered nevertheless. Can it be that the day will come when a Searcy is not loyal to the King?


A seemingly-simple tinsmith, Coleman Witherspoon, cunningly schemes to turn the loyalist town of Searcyville into a patriot stronghold. The founder, Seymour Searcy, struggles to keep control of his town and is shattered when this arrogant patriot arranges to confiscate his prized historical plough for the war effort.

When Seymour’s loyalist sons return from battle with the American colonists, they are disillusioned with the British cause. Angrily they declare that they never should have fought for the king. With the family torn apart, Seymour’s oldest son determines that peace needs to come to their divided town and family. He realizes that only the return of his father’s plough can heal the breach. However, only a deal with the pompous and conniving patriot can make that happen.

GG Doreen Pollack is your host for this event. 


The extraordinary New York Times bestselling author of The Lacuna (winner of the Orange Prize), The Poisonwood Bible (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize), and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, Barbara Kingsolver returns with a truly stunning and unforgettable work. Flight Behavior is a brilliant and suspenseful novel set in present day Appalachia; a breathtaking parable of catastrophe and denial that explores how the complexities we inevitably encounter in life lead us to believe in our particular chosen truths. Kingsolver's riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factionsundefinedreligious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politiciansundefinedtrapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world. Flight Behavior is arguably Kingsolver's must thrilling and accessible novel to date, and like so many other of her acclaimed works, represents contemporary American fiction at its finest.
