In this award-winning, Amazon bestselling novel, a 19-year-old girl from small town Texas runs away from a forbidden love to work in a prison, where she meets real life blues singer Lead Belly, who sings his way to a pardon from the Governor (true story)—but only after he makes her promise to follow his lead, any way she can.
Outside the prison, Dara’s life falls apart and she finds herself on a journey to accept the secret she’s been carrying. Along the way she reunites with her estranged step-daughters, buys a mobile home that she dubs the “Bland Old Opry,” and—to the chagrin of some in her small Texas town—falls in love with the local seamstress, a fellow widower and devotee of Bingo, Mrs. Tanya May Rogerton.
SUGAR LAND is the triumphant, southern story of a wise and feisty woman, Nana Dara, who breaks out of her own physical and emotional prison to become the fabulous matriarch to a family of Texas misfits. Read the full reviews here.
