Whereas Cane River was based upon Tademy's maternal family history, Red River is based upon her father's family history.
Once more the author manages to bring her own ancestry to life in this haunting and capitaving tale.
The scene is set in a post-civil war USA where slavery had ended, but the promises of a land, freedom, and the right to vote have not been met.
The blacks residents of Colfax, Louisiana, decide to take matters into their own hands and attempt to regain control of their town from the former confederacy. However, this soon becomes one of the most pivotal, violent episodes in the racial history of America, as a day-long bloody battle ensues.
The Tademy family must learn to live with the repercussions of that one deadly day, and must rebuild life.
This is a real page-turner.
