Share Article

This new fiction release published by Dog Ear Publishing is a tender and passionate portrayal of a young woman in the prewar South and her burgeoning relationship with a woman who happens to be a slave in her father’s household.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Hush Now” by L.A. Green.

A stirring story, set in a time and place that make the tale even more poignant.

Rebecca Montgomery is young and beautiful, and her father’s right hand as he runs his plantations in ill health. In this new novel, unmarried, Rebecca spends her days keeping the daily operations of her beloved home running like clockwork, but her evenings are spent in solitude. However, this changed after Rebecca met Ruth; a young slave woman, Ruth joined the household and captured Rebecca’s heart after a night spent reading one of Shakespeare’s most romantic plays. The women fell deeply in love, but what could they do at that time and in that place?

Rebecca’s lifelong friend, Chet Jefferson, has long been the man that her family imagined she’d marry. The two friends are beautifully matched in looks as well as temperament, but Rebecca doesn’t love him as much as she loves Ruth. Will her family’s expectations win over Rebecca’s deepest emotions? Can Ruth and Rebecca continue to keep their relationship secret, or will their overpowering love become apparent to those closest to them, potentially jeopardizing all they hold dear?

"Hush Now" is a stirring story, set in a time and place that make the tale even more poignant; Rebecca is a strong character, full of feeling and moral strength, eager to express her love for Ruth even in the face of strong disapproval from society.

Author L.A. Green has a BA Honours in performance theatre from the University of Winnipeg as well as an MFA in theatre performance from the University of Florida. Green worked as a professional actor and now teaches in Jacksonville, Fla., where she lives with her partner and her beloved pets. This is her first book.
