Plain Language

$ 5.00

Set on the plains of Eastern Colorado in the 1930s, Plain Language is a novel about identity-that loosely knit but interconnected net of memories, dreams and aspirations that makes up who we are-and how identity is challenged by marriage, injury, secrets, and misconceptions of the past. Virginia Mendenhall, a Quaker from North Carolina, is thirty-three years old when she gives up everything and travels to Colorado to marry Alfred Bowen, a cattleman who is struggling to make his ranch succeed during the Dust Bowl. "Plain Language is an exceptional novel about the power of memory and desire....Wright takes us into the life of a passionate Quaker woman." -Ursula Hegi
