Daughter of the Cimarron

411 pages6 hours


It's 1928 ... the Great Depression lurks just around the corner.

Divorcing a cheating husband means disgracing her family, but Claire Devoe can't take it anymore. Forced to provide for herself, she travels the Midwest with a sales crew. Can she trust the God who didn't save her first marriage to lead her through the maze of new love and overwhelming expectations? The long twilight of the Great Depression-with its debt, disgrace, drought, and despair-becomes the crucible that remakes her life. Daughter of the Cimarron is the fictionalized tale of the author's mother as she went from ragtime to breadlines, from the silent cities and melancholy towns to a dugout overlooking the Cimarron Canyon, from brokenness to strength.

Join Claire as she struggles with the stigma of divorce, intrusive in-laws, and poverty during one of the darkest eras in America. Through it all, you will see God’s faithfulness and provision as He gives Claire strength to persevere.
