Jodi Thomas

One brief moment of tragedy...

Five women forever changed.

Five women from the small community of Clifton Creek, Texas, have very little in common until an explosion on a local oil rig changes their lives forever. Four of their husbands are killed and a fifth is burned beyond recognition. The women are called to the hospital and wait together to find out whose husband has survived. It is during this bitter vigil that these extraordinary women come to know each other and come to face the tragedy that has affected them all.

Professional Reviews

From Huntress Reviews
The STEEL MAGNOLIAS meet THE ENGLISH PATIENT might be an alternative title for this book. Ms. Thomas' debut modern literature has a warmth and realism that has characterized her past writing, making it accessible to a new audience without abandoning her loyal following. Tears and laughter alike await the reader.

--Amanda Killgore, HUNTRESS REVIEWS

From Roundtable Reviews
THE WIDOWS OF WICHITA COUNTY marks Jodi Thomas's debut contemporary. Her career as a historical romance author has been unprecedented, but she proves she is capable of even more. Expect to run the full gamut of emotions from tears to laughter within the pages of this wonderful, poignant story.

--Tracy Farnsworth,

4 ˝ stars and a Top Pick from Romantic Times Magazine!
“In a remarkably moving story, Thomas examines these very different lives and creates characters readers truly care about. From Highs to lows and back again, these strong women will stay with you long after you finish the book.
--Debbie Richardson, Romantic Times Magazine
