Description:

It's 1923 in Midland, Texas, and Miss Dara falls in love with her best friend?who also happens to be a girl. Terrified, Miss Dara takes a job at Sugar Land Prison for men, hoping to keep her secret attractions under lock and key. Once there, she befriends inmate and soon-to-be legendary blues singer Leadbelly, who sings his way out (true story)?but only after he makes her promise to free herself from her own prison. Sugar Land is a triumphant, beautiful debut novel about the heart?s refusal to be denied what the heart wants.

"With SUGAR LAND, Stoner creates a captivating story for the ages'a young, southern girl in the 1920s who becomes a ballsy broad in a double-wide, and on the journey learns about love the hard way. This heartbreaking and hysterical book inspires us with a brave and unusual life. SUGAR LAND is for anyone who still believes in love."
