Sheryl J. Bize-Boutte's first novel about Louisiana's fictional Tassin Valley and the bayou town of the same name begins in 1854, where the ruling Tassin family's own peculiar version of code noir is strictly enforced, and the rich harvests are from soil thought to be magical. On the surface, the unique Tassin culture seems to promote a fairness acceptable for the times. That is until a newly widowed young man from Paris arrives in town with his infant daughter, setting off a twenty-eight-year chain of events that reveal the brutal truths of inequality, colorism and betrayal. A fast paced, page turning read, the people and the valley and town of Tassin will keep you on the brink until the end.
