The Edge of Nowhere by C.H. Armstrong




The year is 1992 and Victoria Hastings Harrison Greene—reviled matriarch of a sprawling family—is dying.

After surviving the Oklahoma Dust Bowl and the Great Depression, Victoria refuses to leave this earth before revealing the secrets she’s carried for decades.

Once the child of a loving family during peaceful times, a shocking death shattered her life. Victoria came face to face with the harshness of the world. As the warm days of childhood receded to distant memory, Victoria learns to survive.

No matter what it takes.

To keep her family alive in an Oklahoma blighted by dust storms and poverty, Victoria makes choices—harsh ones, desperate ones. Ones that eventually made her into the woman her grandchildren fear and whisper about. Ones that kept them all alive. Hers is a tale of tragedy, love, murder, and above all, the conviction to never stop fighting.




C.H. Armstrong is an Oklahoma native transplanted in Minnesota. A 1992 graduate of the University of Oklahoma, “Cathie”is a life-long lover of books, and staunchly outspoken on subject of banned and challenged books. The Edge of Nowhere is her first novel and was inspired by her own family’s experiences during the 1930s Oklahoma Dust Bowl and The Great Depression. Her website is http://charmstrongbooks.com/ 








Thank you for reading this blog post!

This is an example of a Book Blitz or Book Blast. All of the above information is being published today, January 19, 2016 on a number of blogs to honor the release of C.H. Armstrong’s Edge of Nowhere. Catherine is a loyal follower of my blog. She sent me and the other blog hosts all the information necessary for the blog post in word format along with the images and codes.

She also is having Blog Tours where people review the book on their blogs or do interviews with her. If you’re interested, let her know in the comment area.

Feel free to reblog this post for C.H. Armstrong.

  1. A Book Blitz is a blast! What a great package deal from C.H. (Catherine) Armstrong. She has done her homework and made it easy for others to promote her book. I’ll reblog this to Facebook. This book sounds like a survival tale during the worst of circumstances.

    I’d also be glad to do a Book Blitz for your elder care guide, Joan.
