Retired APSU music professor Sharon Mabry publishes her first book.

In “The Postmaster’s Daughter,” Sharon Mabry’s haunting and suspenseful first novel, a young woman is murdered shortly before her wedding day. This tragedy takes place in the late 1930s, deep in the hills of East Tennessee, and in the years that follow, the traumatic event causes the community’s two most prominent families to slowly unravel.

The Putnams and the Cantrells: two very different families whose lives are torn apart over the murder of a young woman,” Khristeena Lute, author of ‘Finding Grace and Grit,’ said in a review of the book. “This southern mystery becomes more complicated with each chapter as elements of region, family, and sordid intrigue slowly heat to a boil.”

The book, which will be published next month by Thorncraft Publishing, has earned early acclaim from reviewers, who praise its beautiful writing and southern gothic charm, but they often fail to mention another fascinating aspect of the novel – its author.
