About the Book

This Bitter Earth picks up where Sugar left off: on the dirt road leading to Sugar’s childhood home in Short Junction, Arkansas. Here, Sugar hears a shocking revelation about unrequited love, and about one man’s hatred–and the black magic that has cursed generations. Her travels take Sugar to St. Louis, where the bonds of an old friendship test the limits of her courage and compassion–and the sacrifices she will make for another young woman in desperate need of a caring friend.

Filled with the lyrical language, haunting imagery, and compelling voice that imbued Sugar with its power and grace, This Bitter Earth is a novel about the inexorable power that the past exerts over us and about our ability to triumph over adversity and sorrow. Earthy and richly evocative, it is a testament to the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.
