Bayou Cresting: The Wanting Women of Huet Pointe (Paperback)
Usually arrives at our store within 4-7 days
In Huet Pointe, ambition is as dangerous as the brackish water that surrounds the sliver of land. But the women of this antebellum hamlet yearn for more than society insists they be-devout, feminine, and content with living according to cultural norms. So, what's a girl to do? She could employ poison, perhaps a bit of adultery, and drowning in alligator-infested waters is always a choice-whatever it takes to achieve her goal. A novel-in-stories, Bayou Cresting: The Wanting Women of Huet Pointe, tells the stories of ten women brought together by proximity, forever entangled by the actions they take.
