About this title


For little Austin Moody, the sun rose and set behind his uncle Glen. But the day his uncle suffered a stroke and was admitted to Asylum Heights in Meridian, Mississippi, little Moody's world changed forever. In his compelling story about life and love during the Depression Era, Moody shares fascinating insight into a time when hardworking men like his grandfather were threatened with foreclosure and had to create new ways of providing for their families. As Moody details his grandfather's controversial decision to partner with his son, Glen, and utilize his land to make wine in the midst of the Depression, he reveals what became one family's determined journey to survive America's greatest financial crisis. But when love leads Glen into a dangerous entrepreneurial adventure that forces him to commit an unthinkable act, he must face his most challenging obstacle yet-an obstacle that affects his entire family. Asylum Heights retells the true story of a Mississippi farm family as they rely on faith, tenacity, and each other to survive amid the Great Depression.
