A lyrical coming-of-age story set in the 1960s, Hot Fudge Sundae
Blues is an extraordinary companion to Bev Marshall s first two
novels, Walking Through Shadows and Right as Rain. Here again she
mines the territory of the small town of Zebulon, Mississippi,
where even the most seemingly ordinary folks harbor well-disguised
heartaches and intricate secrets.
Thirteen-year-old Layla Jay was only pretending when she knelt
before the preacher to seek salvation. She was hoping to make her
grandma happy and get noticed by the cute new boy in town. But
religion truly piques her interest when a young, handsome visiting
preacher stays at her family s home. Wallace seems genuinely
interested in Layla Jay s life until he meets her mama and falls
head over heels, like many men have before him.
When Wallace marries Frieda, Layla Jay believes she will finally
have the father she s always wanted. But it seems that none of her
dreams will come true as Layla Jay wrestles with her mother s
reckless ways, her unsavory stepfather, a best friend s betrayal,
and the longing for love s first kiss. Yet everything pales in
comparison to what happens next as Layla Jay is forced to tell a
lie to save her mother s world from crashing down.
