(From the publisher):
Delta Wedding, set in the Mississippi Delta of 1923, is a haunting, lyrical portrait of the Fairchild clan, a huge Southern family living on Shellmound, their plantation. Dabney Fairchild is about to be married to the plantation overseer, Troy McRaven, and the preparations for this event are well under way when Laura McRaven, a young cousin whose mother has recently died, arrives to share, albeit peripherally, in the festivities. Told from Laura's perspective, Welty's sensitive tale explores the affections and complexities associated with close-knit family life and vividly portrays the customs anc chaotic charm of a Southern wedding of yesteryear.
