Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A richly emotional novel spanning two decades in the Deep South, the story of Tee Wee and Icey-a cook and a housekeeper working side-by-side in rural Mississippi-as well as their children and the family that employs the two women, is a prism through which we view the universal: racial strife, shattered ties, secrets, and redemption. Illuminated by a resonant storytelling voice and dialogue that rings loud and true, Right as Rain provides indelible portraits of indomitable characters and an almost tangible sense of place, while revealing a deep understanding of race in mid-century Americas south.

Synopsis:

The acclaimed novelist's new work traces 20 years of an unlikely friendship between two black women alongside the white family who employs them--set mid-century in America's rural South.
