Synopsis: The Civil War, racial and economic divisions, and the ongoing question of the treatment of Native Americans, made the mid-19th century a time of great turbulence for American citizens.
Capturing this unsettling epoch in American history, Sara Smith Beattie has written a novel that explores the complex relationships between master and slave, man and woman, parent and child, and the bonds that can blossom and thrive no matter the color of one’s skin. "Grass in the Wind" focuses on the free Southern black community of Smyrna and the lives of those living among its borders—the plantations that prosper, and the white men and women who own the land.
"Grass in the Wind" is centered around Webster, who, as an infant and of unknown heritage, is mysteriously left within the Smyrna community. Through Webster’s maturation and the accounts of his community, family, and his own desire to discover his family origin, a portrait is completed of people who survived during a time when America was feeling incomplete.
About the Author: Sara Smith Beattie is a native of North Carolina who now lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She published a novel in 1995 titled "A Question Of Color". She is a retired schoolteacher and former textbook author for Houghton/Mifflin in Boston.
