A NovelBook - 2017
Mudbound is the saga of the McAllan family, who struggle to survive on a remote, ramshackle farm, and the Jacksons, their sharecroppers. When two sons return from World War II to work the land, the unlikely friendship between these brothers-in-arms--one white, one black--arouses the passions of their neighbors. As the women and men of each family tell their version of events, we are drawn into their lives. Striving for love and honor in a brutal time and place, they become players in a tragedy on the grandest scale and find redemption where they least expect it.
