If the Creek Don't Rise  is a debut novel bursting with heart, honesty, homegrown grit, and a colorful cast of characters. This intimate insight into a fiercely proud, tenacious community unfolds through the voices of the forgotten folks of Baines Creek, each contributing a a new perspective to the story.

If the Creek Don't RiseHe's gonna be sorry he ever messed with me and Loretta Lynn.

Sadie Blue has been a wife for fifteen days. That's long enough to know she should have never hitched herself to Roy Tupkin, even with the baby.

Sadie is desperate to make her own mark on the world, but in remote Appalachia, a ticket out of town is hard to come by, and hope often gets stomped out. When a stranger sweeps into Baines Creek and knocks things off kilter, Sadie finds herself with an unexpected lifeline...if she can just figure out how to use it.
