HBL Note: This book sounds…heartbreaking. Like it might be an ugly-cry-in-public sort of situation. So I recommend if you choose to read this one that it might be one you keep by your nightstand rather than taking it out to a coffee shop. It is about a forbidden love between two women and an unlikely friendship between an inmate and prison worker. I have my fingers crossed that this book has a happy ending…please let Miss Dara be okay with who she is and who she loves.

Sugar Land
By Tammy Lynne Stoner

From the publisher:

Sugar Land is a southern fried novel about love, Lead Belly, and liberation. According to a starred Kirkus ReviewSugar Land "is a postcard of small-town Texas life from Prohibition through civil rights, tracing the treatment and awareness of gay people through these decades. The love child of Fannie Flagg and Rita Mae Brown… [a] ravishing debut.”

It’s 1923 in Midland, Texas, and Miss Dara falls in love with her best friend―who also happens to be a girl. Terrified, Miss Dara takes a job at the Imperial State Prison Farm for men. Once there, she befriends inmate and soon-to-be legendary blues singer Lead Belly, who sings his way out (true story)―but only after he makes her promise to free herself from her own prison. Sugar Land is a triumphant, beautiful novel about the heart’s refusal to be denied what the heart wants.
