9781611942125: Just Doll

“Daugharty does a fine job of demonstrating how ordinary men and women are affected, in unpredictable ways, by race, poverty and geography and by the enduring legacy of important historical moments.”

People Magazine

She is only seventeen when she marries into a world of privilege, mystery, heartache and passion . . .

Doll Baxter is barely grown when she weds wealthy older landowner Daniel Staten in order to save her family's impoverished farm in post-Civil War Georgia. Over the decades that follow, Doll and Daniel struggle to resolve the tensions between them. Both are strong-willed; both are rooted to the fertile southern soil. The twists and turns of their lives together influence the fates of many around them, both black and white.

“It seemed that people were just passing through only long enough for you to get to loving them, then gone as if they never were, or were somebody you had dreamed up for the sole purpose of bringing suffering. Love was dangerous suddenly; a child or husband might be with you one day and gone the next and leave you gnawing on the corner of your pillow to keep from crying out questions in the middle of the night. Then morning, there was always morning.”

Janice Daugharty's 1997 novel, Earl In The Yellow Shirt (HarperCollins), was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. She is the author of seven acclaimed novels and two short story collections. She serves as writer-in-residence at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, in Tifton, Georgia.

From Booklist:

The author of six previous novels, Daugharty turns to historical fiction in this story set in south Georgia a dozen years after the Civil War. Feisty, flirtatious 17-year-old Doll Baxter has been trying to make a going concern of the family farm, but the bills are mounting. When handsome, wealthy Daniel Staten offers to bail her family out of financial difficulty in return for her hand in marriage, she reluctantly agrees. As the new mistress of Daniel's plantation, Doll must contend with a longstanding, formidable housekeeper, who shows an unhealthy interest in Doll's new husband, and her own homesickness for the happy bustle of her mother's house. Most of all, she is faced with acknowledging her deep attraction to her new husband, who blithely takes off for days at a time, seemingly unaware of the fact that getting married might mean he should soften his independent streak. The skillful Daugharty brings to her idiosyncratic, visceral narrative both a great eye for physical detail and a deep wisdom about the push and pull of married life. Joanne Wilkinson
