The Mercy Seat, by Elizabeth Winthrop
This brutally incisive and tender novel is a meticulously crafted portrait of race, racism and injustice in Jim Crow-era South. As intense and intimate as a stage drama, it provides a stunning account of a Louisiana town’s foundering over a trauma in their midst.
