Do you like a good traditional pound cake recipe and inspired Southern cuisine?

Do you like a novel with Southern charm (and that Southern Gothic element as well)?

What about a good quirky character ensemble?

Susan Rebecca White’s novel, A Place at the Table, combines all of these elements. The novel’s prologue describes a disturbing scene in Emancipation, North Carolina during the late 20s, but the bulk of the novel takes place during the 1980s in Georgia, Connecticut and New York City. How does a character from an era of lynchings and fear intertwine with more modern characters trying to make their way in NYC? You will enjoy finding out the answer and following the three main characters of Alice, Bobby, and Amelia as they all make their way to find peace with themselves and the world around them.
