In Robin’s debut novel, the characters search for meaning in life and a place where all belong. A story that is a mixture reminiscent of Fried Green Tomatoes and At Home in Mitford, this novel portrays a loving sense of community and home. The rural North Carolina town of Pleasant Quarry becomes a place where all belong. Robin set out to write a story that was more similar to the life lived in a rural setting.

Robin’s non-fiction tends to have a very religious or spiritual nature to it. I’m this work of fiction, some of that spiritual color comes through, but in a way that is listed as a minor bit of information. The point of this fiction is simply to tell a good story that might make you laugh, might make you think, but the purpose is merely telling a good story. It is Robin’s hope that the story you are about to read will be interesting as you catch a glimpse of life in the rural South of the Piedmont in North Carolina.

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It’s beautifully written. It has lovely, well-rounded characters. And the author does a great job of evoking the rural North Carolina countryside and community. It’s easily one of the best books I’ve read this year. I’m looking forward to reading more in the series.


Robin holds an A.B. in music from Pfeiffer University and a Masters of Divinity degree from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary (LTSS). Robin has been a writer from an early age. From the teens on, she kept journals, wrote essays and stories for fun. This went along well with supporting her musical compositions too. Later her writing experience helped in the writing of newsletters, sermons, and theological essays. Her essay on Contemplative Prayer was published in the Taproot Journal of LTSS.

Robin is a writer and artist living in Western NC with her sweet mountain dog, Birdie.
