Fiction

A story so poignant, gripping and lyrical, resonant with the emotional urgency of Alice Walker's classics and the poignant charm of Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees, Wade in the Water tells the layered story of a friendship that develops between Ella, a 12 year-old precocious and mistreated black girl who sees God in the clouds, and Katherine St. James, a mysterious, strikingly well-dressed white woman who arrives in rural Mississippi in the early 80s.
