New Book by Patricia Thrushart - Cursed: The Story of Marion Alsobrook Stahlman and Her Family
New York, NY – ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to present the latest work by Patricia Thrushart - Cursed: The Story of Marion Alsobrook Stahlman and Her Family
By: Adelaide Books
Who was Marion Alsobrook Stahlman, the center of this tragedy? How did she come to be the focus of intense press coverage and the subject of protests outside her sickroom window? Who were the family members that gathered at her bedside in Valparaiso, Indiana, and spirited her boys away? Author Patricia Thrushart has spent years meticulously researching Marion's family saga, from her ancestor landing in Jamestown in 1609 to the death of her youngest son in 1962. Throughout, Thrushart tells stories that reflect the sweeping course of American history, including colonial life, the Revolution, the migration of settlers westward, the Civil War and the urbanization of the United States. Using a combination of narrative nonfiction and fictional vignettes, the stories explore the changing role of women, the tensions between the growing medical profession and faith, Southern slavery, yeoman farming and more. The story culminates with the dramatic and heart-wrenching tale of Marion's death— a death that will haunt the reader long after the last chapter is read.
Patricia Thrushart is an award-winning poet and writer living in the Appalachian region of Northwestern Pennsylvania. The author of multiple books of poetry, her work has appeared in many regional and national publications. In her narrative non-fiction, Patricia researches and then brings to life undiscovered historical women whose stories illuminate issues still prevalent today.
