LIGHTNINGSTRUCK the Novel by Ashley Mace Havird


Ashley Mace Havird

When 11-year-old Etta McDaniel’s horse is struck by lightning, he not only survives but—along with Etta's shell-shocked grandfather, the family's African American housekeeper, and the widow of a Mohawk chief—initiates her into the world of "action and liability" as the Civil Rights Movement takes hold in Etta's rural South.

Ashley was awarded Critical MASS 4 Literary Best in Show by Robert L. Pincus Ph.D., former Los Angeles Times and San Diego Tribune critic.
