really liked it
Read in August, 2012

This was my first time reading Attica Locke's work and I enjoyed The Cutting Season - great mystery and history. Her characters were believable including their flaws. It was also a mother/daughter story between the main character, Caren has to come to terms with losing her mother and being a mother to her daughter. The setting is Louisiana on the plantation Belle Vie, which is now an historical home open for tours and weddings. A body of a migrant worker is found, and the story travels between the past which is inescapable in the South and the present where people are still trying to erase the past. It is a page-turner. And it is the first book at Harper that is under the imprint of Dennis Lehane Books.
