 About the Book 

LIGHTNING TREE by Rusty Vab Reeves is the story of Nathan Harris, a troubled, self-involved nineteen-year-old farm boy who comes of age and shares a passionate affair with a twenty-six year old black woman. The two bond together on a rural farm outside of Clay, Mississippi in 1951. Striving to escape the margins of poverty and establish meaningful lives, they turn to each other for refuge. The forbidden relationship yields Nathan an unexpected son. This revelation is realized eight years later and threatens his marriage - ultimately pitting him against his bigoted uncle, a lifelong member of the KKK, in a life or death struggle. This gripping novel is the first in a planned trilogy beginning in 1951 and running to the 1980s.
