Lander, Alabama, 1904. Mae honiadau Emma Scott iddi gael ei threisio gan 'hobo du' yn arwain at gymhlethdodau mawr. Yn Lander heddiw, mae Canaan Phillips wedi ffoi rhag ei g?r ymosodol ac wedi dychwelwyd at ei mam-gu grefyddol, dduwiol, yr un â'i magodd yn dilyn marwolaeth ei mam.

Lander, Alabama, 1904. When young Emma Scott claims she has been raped by a 'black hobo', a chain of events is triggered that will affect generations to come. In modern-day Lander, Canaan Phillips has fled her abusive husband and returned to Lander and her fierce Southern Baptist grandmother, who brought her up after her mother's suicide.
Published under the Macmillan New Writing imprint, Terri Wiltshireís gripping debut has been shortlisted for Welsh Book of the Year 2010 and is well worth adding to your personal summer reading list Ė though donít expect its 400 pages to last you very long. Like the hurricanes of the southern states in which it is set, Wiltshireís story will pick you up and carry you away, its page-turning intensity never easing until the bitter-sweet finale.

Lander, Alabama. October 1904 and August 2002. A hundred years may have passed, but little has changed. They donít lynch niggers no more, but the small-town community is still a snake pit of vicious gossip, lies that are believed and truths that are persistently denied. Itís not a world for the vulnerable or frail of heart, whether youíre an elderly black hobo who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or the unwanted child of a scheming and ambitious young woman. In fact, if you quietly disregard the lynch mobs, it is men who are the gentler sex here, imperiously ruled and manipulated by tough women who are determined to survive and protect their reputations, whatever the cost. In a small-town community, reputation is all, even in the twenty-first century, and especially if your reputation is built on quicksand.

When Canaan Phillips finally abandons an abusive marriage and her unrealised dreams to lick her wounds at her childhood home, she begins to see her hard-edged grandmother Lou Venie and her beloved uncle Luke through adult, questioning eyes. One carefully calculated lie has marred the lives of four generations; there are secrets ready to be told and ghosts to be laid to rest. Wiltshire reveals the truths slowly and tantalisingly in a tightly structured, interwoven narrative that maintains an upbeat tone without pretending that all wounds heal.
