About Blackberry Road by Jodi Lea Stewart
Biddy Woodson, one of twelve siblings in a sharecropper family living in 1934 Oklahoma, has learned how to sass and vinegar her way through life, even when it takes a bit of cussing to get through those hellish stacks of after-meal dishes.
Trouble blows in one afternoon when a beloved neighbor is murdered. A single piece of evidence sends the sheriff into the nearby woods to arrest Mr. Leroy. Biddy knows that the kindly gentleman wouldn’t hurt a fly, but she’s convinced the sheriff looks down on sharecroppers and poor folk. She sets her jaw to see justice done for Mr. Leroy, but she finds herself up against more than she ever imagined.
In that fateful summer of 1934, haunting and terrifying sounds coming from the woods lead Biddy into deeper mysteries, despair, and shocking truths. Help comes from an unlikely source, but can life ever be the same on BLACKBERRY ROAD?

Jodi Lea Stewart is a fiction author who believes in and writes about the triumph of the human spirit through overcoming adversity. She grew up smelling cedar berries and cow pens on a large cattle ranch wedged between the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache Tribe. Her friends were Native American and Hispanic, with a few Anglos thrown in for good measure.
Her pastimes were singing to chickens, climbing giant petroglyph-etched boulders, hanging on for dear life in the back end of rattly old pickups driven over terracotta roads so washed out they qualified as mini-Grand Canyons, and riding one of the orneriest horses God ever put on this planet. Many monsoon seasons later, and armed with enough life hacks to fill the Grand Canyon, Jodi writes action-packed historical and contemporary novels set in the South, the Southwest, and beyond. Incidentally, she hopes you love crazy storms and fried okra as much as she does.
