Brighter Than Her Fears

Thirty-year-old Alice Harris is compelled to marry Jasper Carter, a Civil War veteran twice her age. Striving to maintain her sense of self, Alice joins forces with the women campaigning for Asheville’s first public schools, learns to grow and market tobacco, and makes inroads into her newfound family—or so she thinks. When Jasper dies, Alice discovers marriage offered a tenuous promise of security. Her property rights are questioned. The family files for guardianship of her stepson. Alice discovers the Carter family’s hidden motives and turns to the law to fight for her independence, and discovers an unexpected love.
