A new book by a Christian author has local roots in Taylor County. This month marks the nationwide release of “The Taming of Evelyn Gracen,” a historical romantic novel by Sandy Arnold.
Being an avid reader, writing has always been something Arnold tossed around in the back of her head.
“It was just sort of on a dare for myself to see if I could do it,” she said.
She had homeschooled her son, Charlie, from preschool through high school. Once he graduated in 2011, she decided to start writing.
