Book Description

The Party Line by Lora Lindy

The Indie Book of the Day for 15th of February, 2014!

Genre: Literary, Drama

Imagine your mind floating back in time and reading about Oklahoma during the summer of 1971—the care free days. Well… almost carefree. Ten-year-old Gerty prevents that from happening. Every summer, Gerty spends one week with her granny. Seems normal… right? It turns out not so normal when the precocious little girl does a naughty thing. Unlike past summers, something different happens in 1971. Gerty’s Aunt Bessie gets a telephone party line. Quickly, Gerty learns that she can listen to the neighbor’s conversations. But it doesn’t stop there. She repeats what she hears to total strangers—better known as gossiping. You will have to read what happens with that.  The Party Line is a light hearted novel that will make you laugh and gasp. It is for all ages. If you’re older, I forewarn you that you will remember some wonderful times.

Read Sample

I was born in California to two hard working parents, Bob and Ann. My mom was a housewife and Dad worked for Whirlpool. With luck on my side, I was the second of four girls. Some people hated being the middle child, but I loved it. I didn’t have the responsibilities of the oldest nor coddled like the youngest. Anyway, my father’s job moved us all over the US, and finally we ended up back to our roots–Oklahoma. We settled in Tulsa, and I went to Daniel Webster High School through my junior year. Unfortunately my parents divorced, and I went my last year of high school to Spiro High, the home of the Bulldogs. Even though my parents divorced, and even though I moved my senior year, I didn’t mind. I had returned home. All the family lived in the area, so I always had someone to hang out with. Besides, I spent many summers visiting my grandmother, so her home became my second home. My memories of visiting Granny is where the idea of The Party Line originated. Once I graduated from High School I wanted to vist a gigantic continent. So I ended up in Texas. Hey… it’s big. Settling in Huntsville, I went to Sam Houston State University and got a MBA. I met my husband and had two children, Cody and Victoria. Many years later I divorced and moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains. I love it here but still travel when I get the chance. Cape Cod, Oklahoma, and Europe are a few places I enjoy. Sitting on the mountain top is where most of my ideas develop. There’s nothing more romantic than viewing the range of mountains with light snow falling.
