“Smart and heartfelt and highly recommended.” —Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
Readers, booksellers, and critics alike are embracing Queen Sugar and cheering for its heroine, Charley Bordelon, an African American woman and single mother struggling to build a new life amid the complexities of the contemporary South.
When Charley unexpectedly inherits eight hundred acres of sugarcane land, she and her eleven-year-old daughter say goodbye to smoggy Los Angeles and head to Louisiana. She soon learns, however, that cane farming is always going to be a white man’s business. As the sweltering summer unfolds, Charley struggles to balance the overwhelming challenges of a farm in decline with the demands of family and the startling desires of her own heart.
Well written! Didn't want to put it down
What A great book. This was a wonderful summer read. I enjoyed this over the Labor Day weekend and would highly recommend. I felt as though I was right there on the Sugar Plantation in Louisiana! It kept me reading, not wanting to put it down. Good recommendation.
Queen a Sugar
