They came to Texas with nothing but themselves, their nine-week-old son, and an old station wagon containing all their worldly possessions, mostly filled with baby items. They learned to make do with what they had.
The police thought they caught them, but these two were one step ahead. They had to stay one step ahead until she was of age. This meant staying out of sight and possibly being on the run for four years. They knew they could do it, so they did.
They spent over half their first year together hiding five miles from home. With the help of some kind neighbors, they hit the road to find their own niche in the world, a niche named Versa, Texas.
During their time in Versa, the boy and girl mature from two underage teens with a baby, to the owner and operator of one of the largest farms around. Their fortunes began to change with the posting of an ad on a bulletin board at the local grocery store in 1971.
The mother of five and grandmother of seven, Jo M. Russell lives in Clarksville, Tennessee, with her cat. This is her tenth book.
