Book Cover

Velva Jean Learns to Drive – Jennifer Niven

In this spellbinding debut, Velva Jean Hart finds true love-and then risks everything to follow her dreams. Set in Appalachia in the years before World War II, Velva Jean Learns to Drive is a poignant story of a spirited young girl growing up in the gold-mining and moonshining South.  Before she dies, Velva Jean's mother urges her to "live out there in the great wide world". Velva Jean dreams of becoming a big-time singer in Nashville until she falls in love with Harley Bright, a handsome juvenile delinquent turned revival preacher. As their tumultuous love story unfolds, Velva Jean must choose between keeping her hard-won home and pursuing her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry. Join us for lively discussion, coffee and snacks!  Books are available for check out at the library.
