Tobacco Sticks takes us back to the Southern town of Richmond, Virginia in 1945. The war is ending, and for Lee Hartwell and his family it bodes the end of something they won't understand until it is too late. Richmond, like the rest of the South is undergoing change, and in the sleepy summers after the war, Lee watches his father come up against the casual cruelness still laying at rest in the tobacco fields.From the Inside Flap:
math of WW II, the Hartwell family struggles to remain whole as a season of change descends upon the South. Old loyalties and familiar ties are abandoned as their sleepy community lashes out with hate when Burke Hartwell, Sr. chooses to defend a black maid who is accused of stealing a priceless heirloom from the man who wants to remain the U.S. Senator from Virginia.
As his world fills with confusing strife, 13-year-old Lee Hartwell struggles to avoid the perils of first love, break the silence between his family and the brother they refuse to understand, and make his way in a time of unrelenting change. Through it all, his father counsels and confides, easing the path of maturity with a strength of conviction that takes a lifetime to learn.
