Product Details


“A lyrical, gorgeous novel about fractured family, racial tensions, and the way the past flows right up through the present. Bryant’s eloquent tale may be Southern at heart, but it’s universal in its powerful message.” –Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

“Poignant and redemptive, Alligator Lake immerses us in the murky waters of a shifting southern current, where the push and pull of racial boundaries redefine love, loyalty, and heart wrenching pride. Lynne Bryant writes beautifully about the challenges and choices that divide a family in a predominantly segregated Mississippi town, yet delivers us the promise that hope and forgiveness can be found where we least expect them.” –Eileen Clymer Schwab, author of Promise Bridge and Shadow of a Quarter Moon

“Lynne Bryant’s Alligator Lake is a gutsy examination of southern race relations. Bryant is provocative and unflinching as she reveals her characters’ private hopes and fears. Her abiding love for Mississippi shines through as she wrestles with its troubled history. Ultimately, Alligator Lake is a commentary on the redemptive power of love and friendship.” –Natalie Baszile, author of Queen Sugar
“Set in a picturesque Mississippi town, Alligator Lake is a powerful and compassionate portrait of love, secrets, prejudice, and redemption in the intertwined histories of four generations of southern women. Bryant deftly weaves a tale steeped in the atmosphere, charm and complex racial relationships of an evolving South. Alligator Lake is a compelling and memorable read.” –Lynn Sheene, author of The Last Time I Saw Paris
