Cottonwood: A novel By Stacy Dean Campbell

from 17.99

In West Texas in the summer of 1937, Cottonwood tells the story of two families thrown together by tragedy and the bounds of racial injustice. County Sheriff Rube Whitlock is faced with raising his two young sons after the death of his infant daughter leaves his wife mentally incapacitated with grief and unable to care for them.

Overwhelmed with the responsibility, Rube hires Esther, a local black woman whose husband, PV has just purchased his second mule in an attempt to establish himself and his farm as competitive cotton producers. Word of PVs ambition quickly spreads through the dim-lit bars and shacks just beneath the communitys surface and ignites a stirring of dissonance and contempt within the usually quiet community.

‘In Campbell’s impressive debut novel, he clearly loves depression era West Texas and writes its dialogue beautifully. He also shows a natural gift for creating tension.’ – American Songwriter

”The writing is flawless. All the characters, including Jack the mule, are fully drawn and realistic.’ – Writers Digest
