While Earth Still Speaksby Nancy Werking Poling
Can women rescue the planet from ecological disaster?
Elizabeth’s daughter, Angelica, has joined a cadre of eco-terrorists, and Mary (yes, the holy one, but more crone that virgin) has abruptly ended her “Operation: Earth Rescue” visitations at Elizabeth’s North Carolina farm. Now Elizabeth must discover her own calling, a passion worth risking her life for. It’s a journey into her own heart, and the adventure she embarks on is as unpredictable to her as it will be to the reader.
Nancy Werking Poling and her husband live in the mountains of western North Carolina, surrounded by natural beauty. While Earth Still Speaks evolved from her asking of herself, and then of her protagonist, “During this time of ecological crisis, how do I make my voice and my life count?” Her published works include the non-fiction book, Before It Was Legal: a black-white marriage (1945-1987); a short story collection, Had Eve Come First and Jonah Been a Woman; and the novel, Out of the Pumpkin Shell.
