, the latest release from Novello Festival Press
"Refuge is an intensely readable novel of the complexity of family ties and the struggle of a strong woman through the odyssey back to her roots. Dot Jackson is a true Southern voice, a master storyteller and an Appalachian treasure."
-- Dori Sanders, author of Clover and Her Own Place
"Refuge is a wonderful story about the need to find one's place in the world - and the price paid to remain there. With her narrative gift and keen ear for Appalachian speech, Dot Jackson gives her readers a beautifully rendered portrait of a lost time and place."
-- Ron Rash, author of One Foot in Eden and Saints at the River
"As haunting and lyrical as a mountain ballad, Refuge is the inspiring story of Mary Seneca, a courageous woman who escapes a dull, staid life for a difficult yet meaningful one. You will laugh and cry and cheer her on, but you won't ever forget her."
-- Cassandra King, author of Making Waves and The Sunday Wife
