The Kratts are from the cotton country where everyone knows each other's secrets, knows their place in the town hierarchy and where family loyalty is everything. Judith is the oldest of three and she follows these rules and those of her domineering father to the letter.
She tells a story of the family and their history through the cataloging of her home's contents. Each chapter into the past peels another layer of what everyone thinks and what we now know to be the truth. She is straddled between two worlds - afraid of her father and her brother's wrath but more afraid of losing the love of the people who matter most. A brilliant southern voice dripping with such honeyed words that you don't even feel the bee sting of the racism and fear in the early 1900's South.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
