Product Details


“A crucial story for these times of escalated racial division and cultural strife, Burden uses cinematic storytelling to compel us to take a good, hard look at who we are and who we can be. Ultimately, it is a story that shows us love really can conquer all and leaves us with a profound sense of hope for the future. “
—Robin Gaby Fisher, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, bestselling author of After the Fire and The Boys of the Dark

“I’m a Southerner. Maybe that’s why I usually don’t like books set in the South, with all their cliches and justifications. But Burden isn’t like that. By digging deep and exhaustingly researching one small relationship in one small South Carolina town, Courtney Hargrave uncovers the big truths that usually elude us. This is an honest, empowering, incredibly enjoyable, and unforgettable book.”
—Bret Witter, bestselling co-author of The Monuments MenDewey, and Stronger

“Courtney Hargrave has produced a mesmerizing narrative with a powerful social and political message. This is a book for our times.” 
—Bart D. Ehrman, bestselling author of The Triumph of Christianity
