Minton Sparks has been writing for a while, but "White Lightning" was my short and sweet introduction to her lyrical style. Her characters speak and think in ways only a Southerner could capture. She takes us into the hearts and minds of broken people who still carry themselves with pride and the hope for grace. In this novella, we meet Peggy Sue as she deals with marital struggles, her own weakness with the bottle, and the passing of her beloved and salty grandmother "Jebo."
Jebo's diaries have been left to Peggy Sue, and soon she is reading about her family's past--dark moments that have slipped beneath the surface and left oily pools of confusion. As Peggy Sue uncovers the bitter yet sometimes powerful elixir of the truth, she is given subtle choices to move forward or slide back into the cage of silence.
These are understated, sometimes beautiful, at other times painful, glimpses into abuse and love and the freedom of moving beyond the things that try to hold us down. It's everything a good Southern writer knows how to evoke with deceptive simplicity.
