Home to Hidden Springs
by Nilah Rodgers Turner
Follow Elizabeth’s twenty-five years of trials and tribulations in the raw Republic of Texas near Jefferson and Caddo Lake from 1840 through the American Civil War.
Reared as a sensible, but genteel, Mississippi debutante, she is forced to assume an ahead-of-her-times role. Despite hardships, she builds a successful cotton plantation, yet ends up devastated, penniless, and back where she started.
