Alien Species Intervention Book One Baby by J. K. Accinni (2014)

I used decades ago to read a lot of science fiction.   Works like Baby by J. K. Accinni might get me making an occasional venture into that genre.  Baby is a kind of a cross  between a Flannery O'Connor novel set among 1930s depression era Americans from the deep rural south and a top pulp fiction era science fiction work by one of the masters of the form.  The lead female character marries young after her mother is murdered the local power broker of the area.  He is part brutal thug, part cherisher of his beautiful library.  He controls the sale of alcohol, at the time in the USA illegal, vast lands and has his fingers in many enterprises.  The marriage is basically a series of rapes. Having had enough, the wife, maybe twenty, escapes back to her old family farm.  There is a lot of interesting action in the novel but everything turns around when she finds an injured alien in a cave.  She has always had a thing for injured animals so she takes him, to be called "Baby" home and he come back to health.  I don't want to spoil the exciting plot but Baby has all sorts of mysterious powers.  He begins to bring about transformations in the woman and the farm.  I don't want to spoil this for you as the plot really is exciting and a lot of fun.  There is sex, brutal violence but above all there is a deep powerful love story in Baby.  The ending will make you think.

I find myself delving into SciFi every now and then, at this moment reading Ryu Mitsuse's 10 Billion days & a 100 Billion nights & am enjoying it immensely. Hope all's well
