“My parents loved so wildly, they destroyed each other. My father was a tormented man. My brother betrayed my trust. My mother is a self-centered hypocrite. My grandmother has secrets so dark she’d lose me than reveal them. I’m afraid if I love you, you’ll destroy me.”
A coming-of-age tale reminiscent of Glass Castle. Set in Mississippi during the 60s, this book deals with mental illness, the civil rights movement, and dysfunctional family life.
Tallulah returns home after seven years, when her young brother is accused of a crime. She ran away years ago with hopes of forgetting her stormy past but now it’s time to forgive and make peace with it all.
This is the perfect southern summer read for those wanting a beautifully crafted story with heart and soul. Grab a tall glass of sweet tea and this book on June 19th!
