After her father died in the 1880s, Edna Petunia Blue spent many years alone. Although she’d given up on ever finding love due to her advanced years, she was grateful to have become an honorary member of the Sullivan family. When the youngest of the Sullivan girls, Iris, moved to Texas to start her medical practice, Edna Petunia went with her and did it happily.
Cletus Sanders was the man who lived in the woods outside of Nowhere, Texas. Everyone just assumed he’d always lived there alone and always would. When Cletus spotted Edna Petunia shortly after she moved to town, he followed her around relentlessly. After a rocky start, he convinced her she should let him court her. Could a woman in her seventies give up the freedom she’d become accustomed to and marry? Could an old man give up his tent in the woods to marry the woman he loved? Could Edna Petunia finally find her happily ever after?
