Reba Rhyne


For three-quarters of a century, Reba Rhyne’s home has been in East Tennessee. During this time, she was married for 25 years, had a daughter, and established a business of her own. Writing began as a hobby, while she spent months on clients’ locations as a consultant, developing prototypes for boat upholstery. This is her first published novel, but not her last. Writing in a style reminiscent of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Janette Oke, Reba Rhyne, tells stories based on real history, much if it inspired by her own ancestors. For sixty years, she has been a Christ-follower who believes her responsibility is to follow the Great Commission found in the Gospel of Matthew. Retired, she shares her fifteen acres in the Smoky Mountain foothills with Phil the groundhog and numerous other animal friends.
