Milinda Jay’s new release, Annie Laura’s Gift, is based on a true story of Annie Laura Brock (Jay’s great-grandmother), an immigrant in the rural South in the late 1880s who fights for her dream for a home in America. Despite prejudice at the hands of powerful townspeople, and the loss of both her parents, Annie Laura perseveres. With the help of her friend, Morris, she carves a farm from the stubborn Florida piney woods. But darkness descends when Morris is forced from town. Small-town culture is not kind when Annie Laura, the victim of rape, brings an illegitimate child into the world. Learn more about the author at
