A Painted House

Genre: Novels / Fiction and Literature

Language: English

Summary:

Racial tension, a forbidden love affair, and murder are seen through the eyes of Luke Chandler, a seven-year-old boy in a 1950s southern cotton-farming community...

Until that September of 1952, Luke Chandler had never kept a secret or told a single lie. But in the long, hot summer of his seventh year, two groups of migrant workers — and two very dangerous men — came through the Arkansas Delta to work the Chandler cotton farm.

And suddenly mysteries are flooding Luke’s world.

A brutal murder leaves the town seething in gossip and suspicion. A beautiful young woman ignites forbidden passions. A fatherless baby is born ... and someone has begun furtively painting the bare clapboards of the Chandler farmhouse, slowly, painstakingly, bathing the run-down structure in gleaming white.

And as young Luke watches the world around him, he unravels secrets that could shatter lives — and change his family and his town forever..
