Boo Hags, Witches, And Southern Women: A Spellbinding Evening With Julia Franks says
Join Charis in welcoming Atlanta author Julia Franks as we celebrate her suspenseful and beautiful new novel, Over the Plain Houses.

It's 1939, and the federal government has sent Virginia Furman,a USDA agent, into the North Carolina mountains to instruct families how to modernize their homes and farms. There she meets farm wife Irene Lambey, who is immediately drawn to the lady agent's self-possession. Already, cracks are emerging in Irenie's fragile marriage to Brodis, an ex-logger turned fundamentalist preacher: she has taken to night ramblings through the woods to escape her husband's bed, storing strange keepsakes in a mountain crevice. To Brodis, these are all the signs that Irenie-- tiptoeing through the dark in her billowing white nightshirt--has become a witch.

Part witch-tale, part feminist fable, part good old fashioned Southern story, Over the Plain Houses is a book you won't want to miss.
