This novel takes place 10 years after HOW I FOUND THE STRONG ended
and deals with the reconstruction and race relations after the war.
Told from the point of view of 13 year old Addy, who is abandoned
by her redneck family and taken in by Shanks (from STRONG) and his
new wife. There Addy learns she can make different decisions than
those dictated by her own racist family. Vivid scenes involving the
Ku Klux Klan, a school burning and attempted lynching add drama to
this riveting coming of age historical novel.
Author, Margaret McMullen captures the hardship and hardscrabble
feel of this post-Civil War time as well as the hopeful rebuilding
of southern communities.
