Gap Greek, The Story of a Marriage written by Robert Morgan, United States writer and poet.. This novel was published by Algonquin Books in 1999. It was selected for the Southern Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction for 2000, and was chosen as Notable Book by the New York Times. Gap Creek was a selection of the Oprah Book Club and a New York Times bestseller. It was chosen by the Appalachian Writers Association as Book of the Year for 2000.

There is a most unusual woman living in Gap Greek. Julie Harmon works hard, "hard as a man," they say, so hard that times she's not sure she can stop. She is the one who has to be strong when first her brother and then her father die. People depend on her. They need her to slaughter the hogs and cut the wood. People are weak, and there is so much to do.

Though she is just a teenager, she marries Hank and moves with him down from the high country to Gap Creek. There they discover that life grinds ever on without pause or concern for hard work. Scratching out an existence for themselves, always at risk of losing it all, Julie and Hank don't know what to fear the most - floods, or the flesh-and-blood grifters who insinuate themselves into their new lives. Their struggles with nature, with work, and with the disappointments and triumphs of marriage make this a powerful story.
