Life in Defiance is the third book in the Defiance Texas Trilogy. If you haven’t read the first two books, I think it would be helpful (though not necessary) to read those before reading this one in order to get a better idea of the character backgrounds. The storyline is so intense, complex and interesting that I think having the knowledge from the first two books makes this book even richer for the reader. Mary DeMuth is one of my favorite authors and once again drew me completely into the story and made me feel like I was really there.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Set against the backdrop of Defiance, Texas, Life in Defiance, book three in the Defiance Texas Trilogy by Mary DeMuth, reflects a choice we all face: reveal our secrets or bury them forever … and live with the consequences.
In a town she personifies, Ouisie Pepper wrestles with her own defiance. Desperate to become the wife and mother her husband Hap demands, Ouisie pours over a simple book about womanhood, constantly falling short, but determined to improve.
Through all that self-improvement, Ouisie carries a terrible secret: she knows who killed Daisy Chance. As her children inch closer to uncovering the killer’s identity and Hap’s rages roar louder and become increasingly violent, Ouisie has to make a decision. Will she protect her children by telling her secret? Or will Hap’s violence silence them all?
Set on the backdrop of Defiance, Texas, Ouisie’s journey typifies the choices we all face—whether to tell the truth about secrets and fight for the truth or bury them forever and live with the violent consequences.
