    Hillary Jordan's mesmerizing debut novel won the Bellwether Prize for fiction. A powerful piece of Southern literature, Mudbound takes on prejudice in its myriad forms on a Mississippi Delta farm in 1946. City girl Laura McAllen attempts to raise her family despite questionable decisions made by her husband. Tensions continue to rise when her brother-in-law and the son of a family of sharecroppers both return from WWII as changed men bearing the scars of combat.

    Betty says: "May this South never rise again."
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    This was a powerful story. Very well written. All the characters were very well developed. If you liked The Help, I think you'll like this book. The story takes place in on a farm in Mississippi in the aftermath of WWII. Race relations, love, fidelity, loyalty, bigotry, prejudice, war, survival, are just some of the themes in the book. It was one of those books I would find opportunities to listen to and got completely involved in. The audio version of the book is very well done with different people narrating each role.
