Roxanne Reeves defines her life by the committees she heads and the social status she cultivates. But she is keeping secrets that make her an outsider in her own town, always in search of acceptance. And when she's given a job none of the other white women want - researching the town's African-American history for a tour of local sites - she feels she can't say no. And elderly Grace Clark, a retired black schoolteacher, agrees to become her guide.

CATFISH ALLEY, by Lynne Bryant, is a stunning novel of life in rural Mississippi, in the 20's and 30's. Miss Bryant takes special care to present the history of African American life in this time frame, and weaves a story of love, hardship, forgiveness, revenge and strength.
I came to know the characters as friends I would like to have in real life.

I was moved to tears by the last few sentences. Truly a wonderful book
