Washed In The WaterSet between 1950 and 1980, each vignette stares at an individual in the southern landscape. Old Leroy Jackson’s passion leads him to unexpected insight when he enters a coon hunting contest with a boy and runt hound in “Last Love.” Annually, a gathering of women and girls bake “More Than Fruitcake” for the holidays and pass on a tradition that holds dear the good and weak. Lester Groh, “The Stooper,” lives along racing’s underbelly. Billman and Sissy make a choice “The Day the Snake got Killed” and learn about the ripple effect of actions. “The Fig Trees” touches the ripeness and desire of a mother and her woman friend—and her own daughter. Sarah lives in her sister’s shadow in “The Cane Grinding” until she realizes the power of choice. Lisa Dell’s river baptism washes away her innocence and gives her independence in the title story, “Washed in the Water.”You can find Washed in the Water at Amazon, Pen-L Publishing, Nightbird Books, That Bookstore in Blytheville, Terra Studios, and through independent booksellers across the country.
