A young teacher from England achieves a dream when he gets the chance to work for a year in the United States, but 1950s Mississippi is not the America he has seen on the movie screens at home. His travel adventure turns into a living nightmare when his independent spirit collides with the rules of life in the Deep South. Ultimately he faces a defining challenge: can he find the courage to save those who need him, though he is likely to die in the attempt? With many twists and turns, part thriller, part love story, Bound Bayou is an evocative debut novel in a time and country on the verge of huge change.
