and the WINNER is…

Back to the BooksThe WINNER of our 10thBACK to the BOOKS” award is WHISTLING PAST the GRAVEYARD  by Susan Crandall.

In the summer of 1963, nine-year-old spitfire Starla Claudelle hasn’t seen her momma since she was three – that’s when Lulu left for Nashville to become a famous singer. Starla’s daddy works on an oil rig in the Gulf, so Mamie, with her tsk-tsk sounds and her bitter refrain of “Lord, give me strength,” is the nearest thing to family Starla has.

When Starla is caught sneaking out for the Fourth of July parade, she fears Mamie will send her to reform school. So Starla walks to the outskirts of town, and just keeps walking. Starla accepts a ride from Eula, a black woman traveling alone with a white baby. The trio embarks on a road trip that will change Starla’s life forever.

 …Jay Porter is hardly the lawyer he set out to be. Until the night in a boat out on the bayou when he impulsively saves a woman from drowning—and opens a Pandora’s box. But before he can get to the bottom of a tangled mystery that reaches into the upper echelons of Houston’s corporate power brokers, Jay must confront the demons of his past.
