Minnie’s Potatoes is a historical romance novel about the journey of a cultivated urban woman from Prussia who is thrown into the pioneer life of Michigan’s early lumbering era, widowed and left with ten children to support. The question of the novel is, can this woman survive by brewing and bootlegging moonshine during Prohibition’s early days? The narrative was inspired by the life of the author’s great grandmother and is told in her voice.
It’s a story of a father who couldn’t have a son because he was irradiated during the Cold War Atomic testing in the South Pacific, and a son who lost a father to suicide in the same military theater.
The question in this tale of historical fiction is what will happen when the men discover their fatal link?
