Summary (From the publisher):


and when she walked by, every man in the county watched how she moved beneath her sleazy cotton dress and turned their eyes away with something like a wrench.

She was Cara Wilson, sharecropper's daughter, and at a ripe eighteen she'd put a price on herself. Marriage - to Pete, Colonel Arbrister's young heller of a son.

Then the chain gang sent her brother Lonnie home, a man filled with a rage to hurt and destroy. A man with a god of a body that Colonel Arbrister's nymph of a daughter Lillian couldn't keep her slim, patrician hands off.

You could almost smell it, the violence to come from these two families - at opposite ends of every pole - driven together by desire - and by death.
