Deeply rooted in Appalachia, the essays in "Beyond the Apple Orchard" offer part memoir, part reflection, and part humor—
each highlighted with insight and wisdom. Many of Withrow’s essays have been previously published in "The Jackson Herald" and the "Charleston Daily Mail." Little wonder. Her chapter on “Remembrances” is haunting, her “Reflections” thought provoking, and her “Ringside” delightfully hilarious.
Whether writing about childhood, nature, or human foibles, Withrow captures with style and humor the rhythms of everyday
life in Appalachia—and beyond. Delightful.
