PALE: A Novel

From Blackstone Publishing

No worker is safe when the vengeful Misses of a Mississippi cotton plantation begins flirting with one of the black farmhands during the summer of 1966. Just one of the many secrets that envelops the Kern house, Jesse and Fletcher, sons of the housemaid Silva, arrive that summer never knowing this harvest will transform their lives forever. With a dazzling voice and rich emotional tension, PALE explores the ties that bind and how quickly humanity can fade and return us to primal ways.
