The Marriage of Anna Maye Potts


illed with a tight-knit ensemble cast of deeply realized characters, this earthy, beautifully nuanced story, set in suburban industrial America, reveals to us an everyday working woman as she finds her way on her own terms—through work, family, grief and love, and then—not so much finds as makes, a place for herself in the world.   

   DeWitt Henry masterfully portrays a woman gaining an inner force, which she refused to compromise. The novel evokes in the reader a sense of the power of the heart and the will to transform one’s self—and to make claims on what’s rightfully one’s own.
