    Book Description:

    In This Bitter Earth, Sugar Lacey is on her way out of Bigelow, Arkansas, where she d come to break with the past. With her worn leopard-print suitcase and her head held high, she walks past the prying eyes of its small-minded, cruel-hearted townsfolk, praying for the strength to keep going. She doesn t stop until she arrives at her childhood home in Short Junction. Here she learns the truth about her parentage: a terrible tale of unrequited love, of one man s enduring hatred, and of the black magic that has cursed generations of Lacey women. A powerfully realized novel that brings back the unforgettable characters from Sugar, McFadden s bestselling debut, This Bitter Earth is a testament to the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.
