Teaser Tuesday 2/22 The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew

Teaser Tuesday

                 The Dry Grass of August

"One of the deacons stood and said to the preacher's back, "She were beaten down by hate."
"By hate," someone agreed.
"Killed in the street."
The preacher turned to look at the man. 'That's the truth, Deacon Hull. Hate killed our sister. But the love she lived will triumph over the sin that took her away." -- p. 228.
The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew (April 2011)

I think this will be a great reading group pick.
