Ellie had to be ready . . . FOR ANYTHING
Her menfolk swore that it was easier to take a Pond Country woman than to catch a mess of catfish.
Ellie was a true Pond Country woman, born and bred to be bad. But the ripe beauty of her body made her different and made animals of even the men in her own family, as well as the town men, who sneaked up the rutted roads to her shack at night, filled with desires only Ellie could gratify . . .
They all came to Ellie, Ellie waiting and ready for anything that would buy food to fill the hunger in the bellies of her family—for anything that would fill the hunger in her heart.
