“Award-winning author Carol Sheldon’s historical novel Driven to Rage explodes with tension. You’ll recognize characters in this copper mining town, including Sheriff Earl Foster from the riveting Mother Lode. How we suffer, struggling with lust, loyalty and tolerance. Driven to Rage is powerfully moving; Sheldon is a master storyteller of relationships. Reminiscent of Gone With the Wind and Grapes of Wrath.”
