Description

A New York Times Bestseller!

A child of the Texas oil fields, Jeanine Stoddard grew up in poverty. Her father's death and the gambling debts he left behind force the family back to their abandoned farm to eke out a living form the withered land just as the Great Depression settles in. Their last hope may lie in Smoky Joe, a racing stallion as dangerous as he is fast--and in Jeanine's determination to bring the farm to life. When her mother decides to risk the family's last bit of money in a speculative oil-well scheme, Jeanine is left wondering if their misfortunes at gambling won't destroy them all.

Paulette Jiles won the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize for her highly acclaimed debut novel, Enemy Women. With Stormy Weather, she turns again to the drama of America's history, creating a compelling epic of adversity and hope that brings to life a harsh place and a desperate time.
