Sweet Annie Series

Young Annie Cowan was born in an antebellum mansion in a town named for her family: Cowan Tennessee, Franklin County. Losing everything in the Civil War, Annie's father must find other means of supporting his ever growing family. Use to a life of ease and privilige, Annie along with her parents parents and 6 siblings, move to a two room log cabin on the sun baked plains of Texas. This is a story of hardship and recovery. The reader will be transported to another time, another place.

The Sweet Annie Series is based on the life of the authors grandmother, Annie Cowan. The first book, Sweet Annie, begins when Annie is five years old and tells of her childhood first in Tennessee and then Texas. She meets many interesting people along the way and experiences a vast difference in lifestyle.

The second book, Forever Annie, takes up the story at the turn of the twentieth century when Annie is a young woman of nineteen.. Her andventures continue when she marries Marvin Canafax and two large Irish families come together under the hot Texas sun.

The third book, Annie's Legacy, continues the story of this remarkable woman and the impact she has on her many decendants. The reader willfall in love with Annie; first as a small child with a profusion of red curls and bright green eyes and then as a young mother and wife. The impact of this fiery little woman is still felt in her family today.
She heard the rustling of the leaves before she saw it, slithering toward her. It evidently was not alarmed for the rattles on its tail were silent. She tried not to breathe, freezing herself into a statue. Never had she felt such fear, it tingled down her spine with icy fingers. She felt the prickling of the hairs on the back of her neck. She knew instinctively if she tried to stand, the snake would strike before she could get off her knees. The flicking of its tongue made the bile rise in her throat. She wondered if it would be painful when it struck and how long it would take for her to die

Professional Reviews

The News Herald Review
“In Sweet Annie, readers will positively fall in love with young Annie Cowan as they learn about her adventures growing up: first, in Cowan, Tennessee, after the defeat of the Old South; then, in Millsap, Texas, during the expansion of the Old West. Readers will be so enthralled with Annie’s life that they will experience an uncontrollable desire to know more about what happens to her once the book ends. Morris offers a beautifully written account of the every day life of Annie’s time.”

Patrina Leisure, writer for The News-Herald
