Cinder by Albert French
Book DescriptionIn the small Mississippi town of Banes in 1938, time passes slowly and the town's inhabitants follow the same daily rhythm as they have done for years. The streets are hot and dusty and the old people watch the world go by from their porches. But Banes is a town torn apart by tragedy, divided by racial prejudice and haunted by the tale of Billy-Lee Turner, a ten-year-old boy executed for the murder of a white girl. Spanning four years, this sequel to Albert French's outstanding novel Billy focuses on his mother, Cinder, a woman whose beauty has always set her apart. It is a powerful story of heartbreak, community, history, and the ties that bind.

The events recorded in this novel occur during the 1930s in a small Mississippi town, but the range of characters, emotions and social forces, and the inexorable march to doom of a ten-year-old black boy and the society that dooms him, catapult the story beyond a specific time and location.
