US FROM EVIE
York : HarperTrophy, 1995.
Burrman family lives on a 150 acre farm in rural Missouri. The three
children are all quite different. Doug is the oldest and is away
at college. He wants to work the farm when he returns. Eighteen-year-old
Evie also wants to farm. Evie loves to dress in men's work clothes
and can fix just about any machine on the farm. Parr is the youngest
and has no desire to stay on the farm. Parr only wants to spend time
with Angel Kidder. Evie's mother is anxious for Evie to start wearing
dresses and paying attention to Cord Whittle. She is just not interested
though. When Evie meets Patsy Duff, things get complicated.
Patsy is the daughter of the banker who holds the mortgage on the farm.
When rumors begin to spread that Patsy and Evie are lovers, the banker
sends Patsy away and threatens Mr. Burrman to keep Evie away from
his daughter. Are the rumors about the two girls true? How
does the talk affect them and their families?
