Summary In Diane Gilliam Fisher's Recipe for Blackberry Cake, the landscape of West Virginia is rife with injuries and dangers, but also with a stubborn ground strength, a devotion to the freedom of love, play, and the mind pitted against rigid rules, warnings, and punishments. Fisher looks to the women of her family for evidence of that strength. This is a brave and tender book which honors the enduring strength of Appalachian women?Irene McKinney
