The Bootlegger’s Mistress

“The novel is clearly based on both historical research and an intimate understanding of the emotional aspects of the Great Migration, and it does an excellent job of telling the stories not just of individuals, but of entire communities as well. An engaging and well-researched tale of Black life in the 20th century.”

The Bootlegger’s Mistress

Born in 1925, young Carrie Lacey has a happy childhood and adolescence, seemingly immune from the pressures of growing up black in rural South Carolina during the Great Depression. Carrie is keenly aware of her father’s desire to change the fortunes of African Americans throughout the South. What she does not know is that he’s been using some of the strategies of the Underground Railroad, the non-violent system of freeing slaves in pre-Civil War America.
