Virginia Primitive: Two Women, Two Eras Come to Life in New Post-WWII/Civil Rights Era Novel
Who is the primitive when two cultures clash in one small Virginia town?
By: Outskirts Press, Inc.
In the Jim Crow South of the 1940s, black women – unacknowledged back-door citizens – nonetheless perform vital parenting to white children. Sally, a young white girl, looks to Lila, an African-American, for love and support, and loves her completely in return.
After the Civil Rights era of the 1960s, the world declared that Jim Crow was dead. But in the 1980s, Sally returns to the Southern town of her childhood to renew her relationship with Lila, and finds the cultural divide very much alive. The reunion embroils her in a battle over land rights, families, responsibilities. And love.
