The Land of Little Rain

This paean to the high California desert consists of fourteen sketches based on personal observation following solitary sojourns tramping through desert trails and “the streets of the mountains.” Mary Austin, naturalist, feminist, mystic, and poet, wrote thirty-five books and hundreds of articles during her lifetime, but The Land of Little Rain, her first book, is regarded as her masterpiece.

Holly J. Martin - Small Town, Coming of Age Romance
FEATURED AUTHOR - Holly J. Martin’s mother always told her she was in love with love. And guess what, she was right! After all, what is more, exciting than a crush? When Holly isn’t writing steamy, crush-worthy romance novels, she can be found running (she has several marathons under her belt), reading steamy romances (of course), enjoying a glass of wine with her husband (always her favorite crush), or binging on Netflix. As our Author of the Day, she tells us about her book, Princess.
