Inhaltsangabe: In the Bough of the Chinaberry Tree is the saga of two southern women and their remarkable relationships with each other and the South. The reader is introduced to the two, who are first cousins, when they are teenagers growing up in a closely-knit family in Amberton, a steamy small town in South Georgia. First set in the summer of 1974, a racially-charged shooting threatens to rip the small town apart at the seams by dividing neighbor against neighbor, family against family, white against black. Henley Adamson, the story s narrator and perhaps the stronger of the two, flees to New England, not only to attend college, but also to escape from the racist, southern town that she has always called home. The other main character, the stunningly beautiful yet emotionally disturbed Christina Langston, is driven to the very edge of madness by the shooting yet remains in Amberton, having little contact with Henley for more than two decades. In the mid-1990s, Henley eventually returns to Amberton to renew her relationship with Christina, returning to a cousin and a hometown that have undergone complete metamorphoses. Just as Henley returns to her Amberton roots, a sensational murder occurs that unfolds into the ultimate crime of passion. While Henley and Christina must once again learn about each other, they also must learn about the mindset of those who live in small towns when faced with crimes of such magnitude. In the Bough of the Chinaberry Tree is a fictional examination of the small town, rural South that has been romanticized, and oftentimes satirized, in other novels. Complete with dysfunctional families, murder, deception, gossip all the elements of the grand, sultry South the story will stay with you long after you have finished the last page.
About the Author: Mary Ann Anderson lives in the small town of Hazlehurst, Georgia, with her husband, Roy, and their eccentric yet lovable cat, Simba and Murray. A menagerie of squirrels, birds, 'possums, raccoons, and other critters, including an occasional stray pup or kitten, have also decided to share their shady, tree-dappled yard and call it home. Anderson s profound interest in reading, travel, nature, and history, which began when she was a child growing up on a farm in Jeff Davis County, eventually led her to become a travel writer. From those dusty red clay roads, she has journeyed to the far corners of the globe in search of offbeat and intriguing destinations, many of which have provided the fodder for dozens of articles and columns for Scripps Howard News Service, McClatchy and Knight Ridder newspapers, and numerous individual newspapers and magazines, including Georgia Backroads and Georgia Magazine. Her book publishing credits include From Grits and Gravy to Sweet Potato Pie: Recipes from the Bed and Breakfast Inns of Georgia s Magnolia Midlands, a travel guide and cookbook published by her own Magnolia Lane Publishing Company, and Ain t Nothin Sweeter than a Magnolia Moon, a collection of essays published by Mercer University Press in Macon, Georgia. Anderson graduated from Jeff Davis High School in Hazlehurst, earned her Associate of Arts (summa cum laude) from Brewton-Parker College, and completed her Bachelor of Arts in Communications (magna cum laude) at Mercer University in Macon. No matter how far across the earth Anderson travels, her favorite pastime remains exploring the undiscovered back roads of Georgia in search of all those wonderful and little known stories just waiting to be told.
