In this masterful portrayal of a mother's heartbreak and her lifelong quarrel with God, Bret Lott takes a quantum leap forward. His previous fiction won him the accolade of a minimalist John Cheever.--New York Times Book Review. Now he transports readers to 1943 Mississippi and to the subject of most truly great novels: love's redemptive power. Optioned by Twentieth Century Fox.

display_description In the backwoods of Mississippi, a land of honeysuckle and grapevine, Jewel and her husband, Leston, are truly blessed; they have five fine children. When Brenda Kay is born in 1943, Jewel gives thanks for a healthy baby, last-born and most welcome. Jewel is the story of how quickly a life can change; how, like lightning, an unforeseen event can set us on a course without reason or compass. In this story of a woman's devotion to the child who is both her burden and God's singular way of smiling on her, Bret Lott has created a mother-daughter relationship of matchless intensity and beauty, and one of the finest, most indomitable heroines in contemporary American fiction.
