Weep Of The Willow by Iris Fambro Carter

Atlanta, Georgia 1983––Eva has been keeping a secret from her sister Annie. On her deathbed, Eva has to clear her conscience. It is time to right old wrongs.

Crabtree, Georgia 1921––Luella Mae Jameson has found herself in the last place she ever expected to be…living life as the town whore. Luella Mae’s husband has run off with the first “river-hipped thang” that crossed his path, leaving her to take care of herself and their young daughter, Eva, the only way she knows how. After visiting the voodoo priestess, who cast two spells to give Luella Mae her heart’s desire, her life changes in ways she never expected.

Jimmy Thompson is everything society expects him to be…a successful businessman, married to a well-bred southern woman, and above all, a staunch racist and member of the Ku Klux Klan. The only problem is he’s been in love with a colored woman for most of his life and then he’s given the opportunity to have her.

In the midst of such violent times, where the lines have been drawn between segregated whites and the colored folk of Crabtree, Georgia, Weep Of The Willow dares to share their story of forbidden love and secrets.
