                 The Dry Grass of August

"One of the deacons stood and said to the preacher's back, "She were beaten down by hate."
"By hate," someone agreed.
"Killed in the street."
The preacher turned to look at the man. 'That's the truth, Deacon Hull. Hate killed our sister. But the love she lived will triumph over the sin that took her away." -- p. 228.
The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew (April 2011)

Makes me wonder where the title fits in the story. Have a great week and happy reading! Here is my Teaser

a lot of hoops to go thru just to leave a comment

The title of my novel

Took me 18 years to write the novel; during that time I had half a dozen titles...I read lines in a poem ("Star-Fall") by Robert Penn Warren. -- Begin quote: We lay on the dry grass of August… We did not lie close, and for hours/The only contact was fingers, and motionless they./For what communication is needed if each alone/Is sunk and absorbed into/The mass and matrix of Being that defines/Identity of all? We lay in the moonless night,/Felt earth beneath us swing,/Watched the falling stars of the season. They fell/Like sparks in a shadowy, huge smithy, with/The clang of the hammer unheard./Far off in the sea’s matching midnight,/The fishing lights marked their unfabled constellations. -- End quote. I trust that readers of my book will get why I chose that line for my title.
