Based upon a true story of a young farm girl, Lesson of the Harvest is the riveting account of life on an impoverished farm during the Great Depression and how injustice prevailed during those extreme times in the backwoods of South Georgia.
As a desperate young woman, Mattie McCarey struggles to recover from the bitterness and trauma of circumstances caused by this lawless society. This compelling story embarks upon Mattie s love and devotion for a black tenant farmer s wife, Sarah, and tells of her youthful comradeship with Sarah s son, Little Tom, and his dreams of escaping the disadvantages of illiteracy and poverty of South Georgia. It encompasses the hurt and pain Mattie feels from the rejection of the mother who gave her away. Eventually, Mattie, who is rooted deep in the country s soil, is forced to leave the land she loves to bring back what is left of her family and to restore normalcy in her home left marred by unwarranted events.
Lesson of the Harvest bristles into an explosive encounter between Mattie and the man responsible for the rape and death of a young girl on a neighboring farm. Mattie must come to terms with lessons learned from her devoted and wise grandmother. Does she succeed or does she allow her anger and despair to burn deep within her soul like the burning cross of the Ku Klux Klan?
