About the author:
This Texas tale is drawn from the real life upbringing of Bessie Lee Hill Phillips Petsch, who wrote this impressively sophisticated debut novel in the 1950s, having raised four children and dealt with many of the travails outlined in the story. While she lived to age 89, Bessie never saw her book published.

No Mercy for Betty

Authored by Bessie Hill Phillips

No Mercy is a fascinating glimpse into the life of a one-of-a-kind character-part fiction, part autobiography, part romance, part historical novel, but all as real as the Texas frontier. This is the tale of a young frontier woman, forced to endure the iron rule of a mean uncle, lecherous advances of would-be benefactors, and the vindictive jibes of her adopted family. Along the way, Betty Hill learns to rise above her tormentors and finally seize the prize of a happy life.
