Mystery

Along with the sweltering heat of the Mississippi pine barrens, the summer of 1963 brings intruders to Kali Oka Road: The Blood of the Redeemer churchers, members of a secretive religious sect, and Nadine Andrews, a single woman of marrying age more interested in her horses than starting a family.

Both threaten the predictable sameness of this rural, tightly knit community. And both provide irresistible temptation for thirteen-year-old Bekkah Rich, who is willing to risk hell fire in her efforts to spy on the newcomers.

But then her best friend’s baby sister disappears, surrounding Bekkah in a web of kidnapping and murder. Suddenly, summertime antics become deadly serious, and those who were once a curiosity are now tainted with evil.

Re: Summer Of The Redeemers

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of reading "Summer of the Redeemers", I urge you to do so. It is a poignant, beautifully written coming-of-age tale that takes place at a time and place in the South when social upheaval was the order of the day. Yet, in this rural isolated community the young heroine is still blissfully unaware of the world outside her little town. That doesn't stop her from learning adult lessons of betrayal, family issues and that growing up is a difficult ordeal.

A terrific book and one I wish could be re-discovered as a true, classic Gothic novel in the finest tradition of the South.
