A New York Times Bestselling Author

Nameless, Kentucky, in 1969 is a hardscrabble community where poverty is a simple fact. RubyLyn Bishop is luckier than some. Yet, a month shy of her 16th birthday, RubyLyn itches for more. Maybe it’s something to do with the paper fortunetellers RubyLyn has been making for townsfolk. Or because of Rainey Ford, an African-American neighbor who works alongside her in the tobacco field, and with whom she has a kinship.

GodPretty in the Tobacco Field follows RubyLyn through the course of one blazing summer as heartbreaking revelations and life-changing decisions propel her toward a future her fortunetellers never predicted.
