Product Overview

Can an ordinary life leave an extraordinary legacy? 

In 1977, when nineteen-year-old Allison Middleton receives a proposal of marriage from Westley Houser, she eagerly accepts, having no idea the secret Westley carries—a secret that will change Allison’s life forever. But Allison rises to the challenge of raising Westley’s toddling daughter as though she were her own. 
Over the course of their lifetime together, Allison, Westley, and Michelle form the strong bond of family. As Allison struggles with infertility and finding her way during a time of great change for women, others—some she knows and others whom she never meets—brush and weave against the fabric of her life, leaving her with more questions than answers. 
From teen bride to grandmother, Allison’s life chronicles the ups and downs of an ordinary woman’s life to examine the value of what we all leave behind.

    Eva Marie Everson has been gifted with words—not merely words the eyes see and comprehend, but words that relate a story so rich, they weave their way into our hearts, to the very depths of our souls. In Dust, Mrs. Everson’s latest and, in my opinion, her best work, she relates a story of family, a bit of faith, and . . . life. Real life. Not merely the prettier sides of life, but life in its darkest, most-threatening moments. Her characters are real, their emotions often so raw, you’ll find yourself talking to them as if you’ve known them personally. Cliché as it may be, you may feel you’ve walked in their very shoes. Dust will touch hearts across many generations. For some, Dust will be a walk down Memory Lane with descriptions spanning the years between 1965 and the present that are absolutely spot-on. My personal favorites were the songs mentioned. Mrs. Everson has done it again … written a timeless treasure.
