Two of Verna Mae Slone's most beloved books -- How We Talked and Common Folks -- are now available in a single edition. How We Talked is a timeless piece of literature, a free-form combination of glossary and memoir that uses native expressions to depict everyday life in Caney Creek, Kentucky. In addition to phrases and their meanings, the book contains sections on the customs and wisdom of Slone's community, a collection of children's rhymes, and stories and superstitions unique to Appalachia. More than just a dictionary, How We Talked is a rich compendium of life "on Caney," offering an understanding of the culture through the distinctive speech of its people. Originally published in 1979, Common Folks documents Slone's way of life in Pippa Passes, Kentucky, and expands on such diverse topics as family pets, coal mining, education, and marriage. Slone's firsthand account of this unique heritage draws readers into her hill-circled community and allows them to experience a lifestyle that is nearly forgotten. Whether she is writing about traditional Appalachian customs like folk medicine or about universal aspects of life such as a mother's yearning for the little girl she never had, Slone's instinctive sense of what matters most makes Common Folks a compelling meditation on a legacy worth remembering. Published together for the first time, How We Talked and Common Folks celebrate the spirit of an acclaimed Appalachian writer.

Forty-something Beverly Brown, who feels as common as her name, embarks on an insightful, and often humorous journey of self-discovery. Along the way she meets Grant, a paraplegic French Canadian, who relights her passion for music and helps her discover things she never realized about herself. But they both know right from the get-go that they only have six weeks before he moves back to Montreal, and he does not believe in long distance relationships. Is it worth the risk to open up her heart again knowing it will soon be broken? Or can she make him change his mind? There’s also Jack, the part-time judge she works with. There is a bit of sexual tension in their friendly relationship that Bev tries hard to ignore. Now Jack has offered her a job in his law firm in the city. It sounds exciting, but also seems a bit more change than she is ready to make. Throw in her needy adult children, her narrow minded family and her manipulative ex-husband and it is easy to see how Bev has locked herself away in her self-made cocoon for so long. This is not a romance, but there is love. It is not religious, but there is spiritual confl ict. It is not a comedy, though there is humor. It is, however, a life changing story of confronting guilt, regret, and unfulfilled dreams, and rediscovering passion and hope for a purpose filled future.
