Hoschton resident Christina Yother’s first novel was released to the public on Tuesday.

The book, “Reverie,” explores the importance of family and is the first of what Yother said she hopes will be a trilogy.

Set in the fictional town of Hollow, Mont. in 1883, the “Christian-inspired romance”—as Yother called it—is a historical fiction which Winslet Press said in a release is meant to “explore the intricate balance of family, faith and love.”

Yother, a wife and mother to three children, moved to Georgia from Ohio when she was 19 or 20 years old, she said. She was transferring to UGA to get her degree in secondary English education. After finishing her Ph.D. at UGA in 2012, she said she decided to pursue writing full time.

Yother’s first novel, while not set in the South, draws on the strong influence of family values that Yother said she was struck by when she moved to Georgia.

“I met my husband when I moved down here, and when I met his family I saw how close and rooted everybody was with each other,” Yother said. “They all wanted to stay in the same area and get together for holidays and be part of everybody’s day-to-day lives, and it was such a strong bond.”

The second book in the intended trilogy has been sent to the publisher, Yother said, and she is in the process of writing the third one. All three books are set in the same town, and though the main characters from each book will be present in the other books in the trilogy, the storylines of the novels will feature different heroines.

Yother, who has been interested in writing since her childhood, said she also has plans for a “completely different” novel which would not be a romance and would be set in the South, in a fictional town similar to Athens.

“This has been a very exciting experience,” Yother said. “I’ve received tons of support from family and friends and the local community. It’s great to feel like everybody’s excited for you.”

“Reverie” is now available for purchase as a paperback on It will be available soon in Kindle format, as well as on in paperback and Nook editions, Yother said.
